WW1 officer data released

To mark the end of World War One that came to a close on 11 November 1918 with the signing of the Armistice, TheGenealogist has released more than 42,000 records of officers that died in the Great War, along with additional Rolls of Honour and over 30,000 war memorials and war grave 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.

The new records include details of an officer’s rank, cause of death, date of death and regiment.

Chris Baker from The Long, Long Trail website and www.fourteeneighteen.co.uk commented: “TheGenealogist has got itself a very interesting collection of niche records that can really help you unlock the story of a soldier.”
