Britain, Trade Union Members, Service & Casualties 1914-1918

Explore this unique collection of trade union records recorded during the First World War. During the war years the unions often featured the names of the men and women who went off to war as servicemen and nurses in their union reports. Within the records you may you’re your ancestor’s photograph, rank and regiment. You can also find their union branch, whether they received any benefits or may have be featured in a special profile within the union’s newsletter. In addition to war records, some of the reports may include the names of those who did not serve in the war and are featured in the reports because of other trade union business. Many of the unions had branches across Great Britain and Ireland and even further around the world.
