Findmypast Release Records for Nurses, the Navy and Beyond

The following announcement was written by Findmypast:

And with 169 new and updated newspaper titles, there are more stories than ever before.

This week, we have two additions to existing record sets and one entirely new collection, so if you’ve been struggling to locate an ancestor in our indexes before today, make sure to take a look.

Middlesex Monumental Inscriptions

Nearly 4,000 new records have been added to this existing collection covering seven parishes across the country. These include biographical details for an ancestor. Some families were buried together, so more relatives can be found by exploring one record. Some records include original images, and the collection as a whole ranges from 1485 to 2019. 

Military Nurses 1856-1994 

 Another 9,000 transcripts have been added to this existing collection, which mainly focuses on the nurses who served in the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service (Reserve), and the Territorial Force Nursing Service during the First World War. The available detail varies, possibly including an ancestor’s rank, qualifications and training. 

Indian Navy Records of Service 1840-1947 

Find an ancestor’s name rank, regiment, and time served with over 1,800 new transcriptions, published in partnership with The British Library.
