Enquiries - Getting in Touch
We regret that we are unable to respond to King's Own Royal Regiment enquiries from 1st June 2019 until 31st August 2019 due to urgent collections management work. We apologise for any inconvenience that this causes.
If you enquiry relates to a soldier who served prior to 1924 any official records which survive can be found at The National Archives at Kew, www.nationalarchives.gov.uk They have soldier records which survived enemy action in the Second World War, and also things like medal index cards and medal rolls which are a good start to find information on soldiers.
Enquiries for service records after 1924 should be directed to the Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow.
Information on the grave or memorial location of soldiers who died in the two World Wars can be found with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. http://www.cwgc.org
