Military Monday: UK, Women’s Royal Naval Service Records, 1917-1919

This new collection from Ancestry has just 558 records for the WRNS originating from ADM 318 at The UK National Archives, Kew. The extensive information, most in images of the original record. may include:

    • Name, including maiden name if married
    • Rank
    • Birthplace
    • Birth date
    • Age
    • Date and place of enlistment
    • Date and place of discharge
    • Nationality
    • Residence
    • Marital status
    • Physical description
    • Regiment
    • Unit
    • Names of family members
    • Relationships to next of kin
    • Addresses of next of kin

Over 5,000 women were in the WRNS during the course of the war so the collection is far from complete.
