Original documents transcribed.
Every detail of these original, often fragile and fading records is painstakingly transcribed by a team of fastidious data entry analysts. To ensure the very highest levels of accuracy they are all UK-based with English as their mother tongue – and Forces War Records is the only site that transcribes virtually all its own data, meaning records can be amended or altered if more verifiable, correct data subsequently comes to light.

Specialising only in military history, Forces War Records also has a crack team of professional researchers and military experts on hand to personally uncover extra layers of history about long gone forebears. Our mission is to hold the most in-depth, accurate and helpful military records available.
