Researching your
Royal Marines 

Ancestors

I’ am often asked  about researching individual Royal Marines, and I am happy to help where I can, however I always suggest gathering as much information first through the various archive services available, 

 

For example the  National Archives in
Kew  have searchable  and holds 110,000 men who joined the Royal Marines between 1842 and 1925, and records after this date are available via MOD for relatives.

I am always interested in finding out more about individual Marines and  if you find a particularly interesting story please let me know, I may be able to include it on my map and RM People blog.
