I went to the cenotaph in my town today and stood in silence for two minutes with the nation. Sad thinking about the loss of life in every war.
Lest we forget.
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 just released over 42,000 records of Officers that 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 an already strong WW1 Collection on the site, providing a highly 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
- View images of the HMSO’s Officers Died in the Great War Part I & II 1914-1918
- 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 Graves plans, maps and listings
Family history researchers with ancestors who fought in the First World War will welcome these fascinating new releases that add to TheGenealogist’s well received collection of World War 1 records.
“TheGenealogist has got itself a very interesting collection of niche records that can really help you unlock the story of a soldier.”
