We have just added 7,247 extra Chelsea Pensioner British Army Service Records and 44,130 extra images to our WO97 collection.
The National Archives describes this set of records (WO97 boxes 6323-6383) as ‘supplementary series formed from documents which were found to have been misfiled when the post-1913 records were sorted’.
There are now 1,041,092 records in the entire WO97 Chelsea Pensioners collection on findmypast.co.uk
This new release means that if you haven’t been able to find your ancestors in our Chelsea Pensioner records, it’s definitely worth searching again now. These new records provide an alphabetical list of soldiers by last name which spans over 100 years.
