Welcome to British Army Ancestors. This is a FREE site. It will always be a FREE site. The vision is one of our vast army of British Army Ancestors brought to life. Search for a soldier. Upload a photograph. Search for another soldier. Upload another photograph. In time, it is intended that this site will become THE place to come to when looking for images of British Army Ancestors.



 
SEARCH for a soldier. UPLOAD a photograph. REMEMBER the person. So many people asked me how they could find a photograph of their British Army Ancestor that I decided to create this site. Now it's up to you.Help make British Army Ancestors THE PLACE to come to when looking for photos of British Army soldiers. There are millions of searchable names on this site. Help me put faces to them. SEARCH, UPLOAD, REMEMBER.
 


There are over 11 million searchable names on the British Army Ancestors website. Searching is easy and fast. Use the wildcard asterisk * to narrow your results. REGISTER in order to upload photographs and download existing images. That's all there is to it. This website will be regularly updated and new features announced via the blog. Thanks for supporting this initiative to put faces to the names of our British Army Ancestors.



CONTRIBUTE DATA! Do you own medal roll transcriptions from WO 100 or similar? I am seeking to plug known gaps in this database of British Army Ancestors by adding medal roll transcriptions and other databases to this site, thus augmenting the 11.6m searchable names you will find here. Contact me if you would like to contribute: paul@britisharmyancestors.co.uk.



I RESEARCH SOLDIERS Ten years ago I started a blog which I misleadingly called Army Service Numbers 1881-1918. Misleading, because as any military historian pedant will tell you, at this period of time the numbers were issued by regiments, not by the army. Army numbers came later in 1920. Nevertheless, my 'regimental' numbers blog has had thousands of views over the years and I have been pleased to help hundreds (if not thousands) of researchers and family historians. I also carry out research.
