We are always happy to reply to enquiries about potential projects or research that do not quite fit in with our standard work. This FAQ page may help.
In many instances we are faced with a situation where the man’s name and other personal details are known, but nothing about his military service. This is normal for us and we do undertake such work. The chances of a definite identification rely on whether his service record exists, how common his name was, and to some extent where he came from, for all of these things can help pick him out from others.
Generally, no. Their records are online and easy to find. We do however research men of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines who served with the Royal Naval Division.
The army service records of such men are not accessible in that they are held by the Ministry of Defence and only released in accordance with kinship rules they apply. We can of course gather in all other Great War material about such men (medal rolls, casualty lists etc). It is best if you obtain the record first and then come to us for the rest.
If they went on to see service in the First World War, yes.
We do research men of the Australian, Canadian, Newfoundland and New Zealand armies, but not those of the Indian or other forces.
We would be delighted to produce our material in whichever formats you like – on CD, printed and bound – even as a small website. Just let us know at the outset – and make sure we have plenty of time! A typical research project takes 3-4 weeks to complete.
We would be delighted to discuss your needs. For example we recently researched all 30 men on a village war memorial for a local history group.
