Exclusive to Forces War Records – the specialist military genealogy website
These records have been painstakingly transcribed, directly from the original Military Hospital records in the National Archives, so you won’t find these anywhere else online. The original documents were handwritten, often barely readable, but the Forces War Records UK based transcription team of 70+ experts worked for 2 years to decipher it and get the data online, making it easy for this collection to be searched, simply by name.
Why search our Hospital Records? In some cases these records may be the only existing proof for those researching, that their WW1 ancestors fought in the war. They’ll show what he was treated for and where he went after he was patched up (or not!)
Following an independent study our records have been verified as being 97% accurate by two industry experts.
