Forces War Records Genealogy Website Hosts British Military Records
Posted by Diane

Did your British ancestor serve in the military? You might be interested in this genealogy website: A British company called Forces Reunited, founded in 2001 by a military veteran, has launched a military records subscription site called Forces War Records.

The site holds more than 4 million British military records from World Wars I and II, the Boer War (1899-1902), the Crimean War (1853-1856), African wars (1815-1853) and Napoleonic wars (1799-1815). Search results are cross-matched to information on more than 4,000 regiments, bases and ships of the British Armed Forces dating to before 1350.

You can set up a free account, but you'll need a subscription to see full details of records matching your search. Subscription prices range from 25.95 pounds (about $41) for three months to 85.95 pounds (about $135) for 12 months.

The site has a free search for Prisoners of War (1939-1945), an index giving you the name of the servicemember, camp,  regiment linked to information about the regiment) and branch of service, plus a link to search results in the site's other records for that name.

You also can search a free index to information from Medieval military records, with data from a free site called the Soldier in Later Medieval England.

Thank you for mentioning the price. Another blog didn't - and their website doesn't let you know about the cost til you've searched and want the information.

Hello: they actually start at £8.95 for a month.
I didn't mind registering for the free basic stuff anyway: the tutorials were really informative and professional.
