Discover family heroes and their incredible stories in our latest releases.

Throughout November, we’ve been honoring family heroes on Findmypast. Discover even more of their amazing legacies with this week’s brand new releases.

Covering over 130 years of British military history, discover your family heroes’ last wishes in these important records. Each indexed record can reveal your relative’s name, regimental number, and when they died.

You can then use this information to order a copy of the original will from the official government website. The original could include even richer detail like next of kin information, the value of the individual’s estate, and more. What’s more, most soldier’s wills are in their own handwriting, making them precious family mementos.

The Diamond War Memorial in Londonderry (Derry) lists hundreds of locals who lost their lives in the Great War. These records can help you unlock their remarkable stories.
