Chelmsford City Museums

Chelmsford Museum has a large database of personnel who served in the Essex Regiment, which includes information about the:

  • Essex Regiment
  • Essex Volunteer and Territorial Units
  • Essex Home Guards
  • names of Essex war memorials
  • names from Rolls of Honour
  • 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. A donation to the Museum is kindly requested. 

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

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

Once we have received 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

Searches are currently being handled by our volunteers, and therefore may take several weeks.
