If you’ve done any indexing you perhaps appreciate the work needed for even a few hundred records. So it may be mean to note that the additions to this Great War collection are less than 2,000. All new entries are welcome, but by the standard set by Findmypast and other companies, this is a tiny addition to the collection.
As well as names, ranks, and service numbers, the records reveal details you won’t find elsewhere, like illness or wound descriptions and how long the injured soldiers stayed at a medical facility.
Although the title of the collection is British, 753 Canadians are included among the 1,335,419 in the total collection.
