To coincide with Remembrance Day, Genes Reunited has released a variety of military records taking its collection to 8.5 million.

The British Army Service Records are just one of the latest record sets added to the site and they include the Chelsea Pensioners British Army Service records, 1760-1913. These records are an important resource for family historians as they provide rich information on the soldier’s name, place of birth, regiment and the dates of service within the British Army.

Another fantastic record set for family historians is the recently added Prison Hulk Registers, 1811-1843. These records detail the conditions on the prison ships and give an insight into the characters of the prisoners on board.

New WWII Prisoner of War records have also been added to Genes Reunited, including British Officers taken Prisoner of War between August 1914 and November 1918 and Prisoners of War, 1939-1945.

Rhoda Breakell, Head of Genes Reunited, said: ‘From the Harold Gillies Archive to the Military Nurses 1856-1940 we’ve released a huge variety of records. These new records will be an invaluable resource for people wanting an insight into the lives of their ancestors.’
