View Full Version : Soldier records

25-02-2018, 6:34 PM
My great-great grandfather was a soldier in the Crimean War
John Cox, born about 1829 in Ireland
Moved to England about 1851-1854
There are 209 John Cox recorded
What records exist, where, and what information is held to help me determine the correct one please?
I think I have to go to National Archives as records not online, but ?I have no clue as to where to start.
Any help would be very welcome, thank you

The National Archives has this (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/crimean-war-records/)research guide but I must admit it doesn't seem that simple and will need more than one read to understand.
I am sure others will have some ideas.
