To commemorate Remembrance Weekend, Ancestry.co.uk is giving everyone the chance to discover their family’s role in the Great War. Access to World War I Service Records, Pension Records and Medal Index Cards is completely FREE, until November 13th.
Available records include:
WWI Service Records, 1914–1920 - includes over 2 million soldiers who remained in service until the end of the War, or were killed.
WWI Pension Records, 1914-1920 - includes information about almost a million men who were discharged during the War, usually because of injury or illness.
WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920 - the most complete list of British World War I soldiers – as just about all of them were entitled to at least one medal.
