Welcome to WW1 Research Ireland!

Hundreds of thousands of Irishmen and men of Irish descent served with honour in the Great War, 1914-1918.  Over 30,000 made the supreme sacrifice.

Was your relative one of these brave men?

With the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of this conflict upon us, many more people are developing an interest in finding out details about their relatives.

With the passage of time, memories are fading and the stories of these men are in danger of being lost.

It may be that you only have a name. Not a problem. Obviously, the more details the better, however, utilising years of experience in researching in this field WW1researchireland will carry out thorough research into your serviceman utilising records from the time, and provide you with a professionally researched and presented report detailing their service, and putting into context the issues of significance that affected them.

The report you will be presented with will be of a high quality and can be an ideal gift, or will be a valued piece of family memorabilia, suitable to be retained in the family archive to educate future generations.

    What you’ve done, Michael, with the reconstruction of an army service without a surviving service record is masterful and moving. It will certainly make our visit to Flanders at Easter a great deal more meaningful.
    It was an added pleasure to receive something so well written and presented.
    Wishing you every success with your research in the future

    Hi Michael, my great-uncle, William Francis Curtis, a native of Arvagh, county Cavan, died 1st July, 1916. He was in the 9th Bn., Royal Irish Fusiliers.There is no grave for him. We have no army photo of him, no death medal and no details or letters, etc. Is there any possibility of obtaining photos, letter, army administration details?
