To mark the end of World War 1 that came to a close on 11 November 1918 with the signing of the armistice, TheGenealogist has released over 42,000 records of officers who died in the Great War, along with additional Rolls of Honour and over 30,000 War Memorials, War Graves plans, maps and listings.

These fully searchable records join the rest of the World War I collection on the site, providing a useful resource for those seeking their ancestors caught up in the conflict. 

This new release will allow researchers to:

  • Discover officers who gave their lives in the First World War
  • Find an officer’s rank, cause of death, date of death and regiment
  • Look for names commemorated in Rolls of Honour and War Memorials
  • See war grave plans, maps and listings 

Subscribers to TheGenealogist’s Diamond subscription can search 5.4 million Medal Records; 2.4 million Casualty Lists including Wounded, Missing and PoWs; 666,000 Muster & Pay Book records; 624,000 Soldiers died in the Great War; 506,000 War Memorials; 227,000 Roll of Honour transcripts; and Mentioned in Dispatches records.

In addition members can search and view Newspapers from the period (Illustrated War News, The Sphere, War Illustrated, Illustrated London News, The B.E.F. TIMES with which are incorporated The Wipers Times, The "New Church" Times, The Kemmel Times & The Somme Times.)
