Remembrance Day
Build your picture of those we remember
This time of Remembrance is the ideal opportunity to uncover fascinating personal details about your relatives who served their country in the armed forces. We have more than 200 million military records from round the world to explore – so you can build a vivid picture of the heroic efforts, achievements and sacrifices made by those you remember.
Top Tip
Free Access
To honour this year’s Remembrance commemorations we’re offering free access to all our military records – from around the world – from 6‑11 November.
Military records
Our most useful military collections include original WWI Service and Pensionrecords – extensive documents detailing your ancestors’ entire service. WWI Medal and Award Rolls act as virtual roll calls of the entire Army, and if you know what unit your relative was in, our WWI War Diaries offer intimate day‑by‑day accounts of each unit’s involvement in the war and often detailed views of key battles. 

We also have important WWII collections including British WWII casualtiesand Prisoner of War records. And for older soldiers, start with our Army andNavy medal records, starting way back in 1793.

Our WWI Service and Pension Records stretch across several pages. Make sure you read all your relatives’ files – use the left and right arrows at the bottom of the viewer.

Many of the Historical Insights – introduced with our recent site improvements – are dedicated to times of conflict. These Insights can help you understand how your relatives dealt with these difficult times – on the front or back at home. Check the LifeStory tab in your ancestors’ tree profile pages.
