Frequently Asked Questions

We are always happy to assist with enquiries about potential research. The following may be of some assistance:

Do you research men who served in non-Irish regiments, or who were not from Ireland?

Most definitely. We are always keen to undertake research on those who served whatever their regiment or birth place. For example, recent research has been carried out on a King's Royal Rifle Corps soldier from London. In addition, research can be carried out on the many soldiers serving in Canadian, Australian and New Zealand forces who were recent emigrants from Britain and Ireland.

I am not sure of all the soldier’s details, can you still help?

Yes. The greater amount of details that are available will improve the chances of a successful result, especially with commonly held surnames. However, we will always strive to achieve the best results possible.

Can you research men who fought in the Boer War?

If they also served in World War 1, yes. This is because the majority of our research is based on World War 1 records.

Can research be carried out on more than one individual? For example, if there are brothers from the same family, or friends from the same workplace?

Certainly. Let us know the relationship on the enquiry form and the reports will be tailored to highlight the connections and provide context.

Can research be carried out as a gift for someone?

Yes. Let us know their details, and the date required for on the enquiry form – We will usually endeavour to have research completed within one month.
