Family history searches

We do not hold the original records for soldiers from Essex, but we do have a substantial collection, which includes information about the:

  • Essex Regiment   
  • Essex Yeomanry
  • Essex Volunteer and Territorial Units
  • Essex Home Guards
  • names of Essex war memorials
  • names from serviceman inscribed on private headstones
  • names from Rolls of Honour
  • names of Rolls of Service
  • names from Essex War Graves

If you are researching your family history and would like us to carry out a search of our collection, you can contact us.

To ask us for help with your family history search, you will need:

  • your name and contact details
  • to give as much detail as possible, including family and location information

Once we receive your request, we will:

  • carry out a search of our records to see what information we can find

  • update you, once we have completed our search
