Find Your WW2 Heroes: Roll of Honour now online.

As we remember the 70th anniversary of the start of the Second World War, it is a good time to remember the 349,000 british soldiers, sailors and airmen who fought and perished during this conflict.  Ancestry.co.uk have just released the WW2 Roll of Honour which records all these heroe’s names, along with specialist information, manually decoded from the original short-hand documents. This means, that now you can now see extra details of those who were killed in action, died of wounds, disease, sickness or natural causes.

You can also find out where they were fighting and where they were taken after being wounded. These details were all recorded by the War Office and are now available online for the first time. Search for them online at http://www.ancestry.co.uk (subscription required). If you do not have a subscription, contact me for an individual quote on discovering your own hero. It will be a lot less expensive than the cost of the subscription to Ancestry.

Their stories should never be forgotten.
