Release Information

The first two phases of this project — digitising the collection and mapping the images to their geographic location — are complete and were launched on the 13th November to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the completion of the Army Census. Researchers will be able to browse the collection by post and discover which, or how many, soldiers were stationed in any particular area.

Phase three enables a search by forename and/or surname of the entire collection and will return the results of the search in a webpage with a link to the Census Record. As an additional feature to the project the user has the capability to generate the results from a county wide search.
