First World War Soldier Research Service
When the First World War came to an end at 11 am on 11 November 1918, the silence marked the end of the bloodiest conflict ever fought by Britain. Every family in Britain felt the indelible mark of this war, with over five million men and women serving in the armed forces. With a First Class Degree in War Studies from King’s College London and years of experience researching at both the British Library and National Archives, I offer a personalized First World War soldier research service that brings a soldier’s past to life. There are a range of research options available, depending on whether you need a complete soldier’s history or just a document photographed.

First World War Soldier Research Guides
I have written a number of guides to enable you to conduct your own research into a soldier, whether they served in the British or Indian Army. Many people begin their search after finding a relative’s medals, so I have written a comprehensive guide to First World War campaign medals and their records. My great-grandfather’s medals are shown below. They contained all the information I needed to start my research into his First World War service.
