What can these records tell me?

Each record is an original transcription from London County Council’s roll of employees that had served during the war.

The amount of information listed varies, but the London County Council Record of Service records usually include a combination of the following information about your ancestor:

  • Name
  • Soldier number
  • Regiment
  • London County Council Department
  • Discover More about the London County Council Record of Service records

    The London County Council published the list in a book in 1920 that was presented to every person listed (and to the next of kin when that serviceman or woman was killed).

    The information from the London County Council Record of Service was published in two parts: a narrative of the war and a published roll of men sorted by the department they worked in. For the first time this information has been amalgamated so that your ancestors can be tracked by name, number or regiment.
