My great uncle served during the first world war with the Cheshire Regiment then the Labour Corps. I have his regimental numbers & wonder how I can find out about which battalion he served with along with details of his his army career as I am unsure where to go with this. Can anyone point me in the right direction? It may be that his records are among those that got burnt!!
Many thanks
 
Hi Steve
Thanks for replying. I am a member of Ancestry but am unable to get any records from them as it appears that they have not yet put surnames on the list after the letter 'N'. I have got my great uncle's medal record card from them which gives me his regimental nos. for both the Cheshire Regiment & Labour Corps but I am unsure as to who to go to with these!!

Hi Dave,
Have you tried the Cheshire Regt web site. Most have museum/archives.

I tried this for one of my Grt.Uncles, and got a huge amount of info. back.

I got his commanding officer, order of battle etc. almost a small book.

It was a charity, and i was asked to make a 'contribution'. Which I most gratefully did.

Steve.
 
Hi Steve
I went on to the Cheshire Military website after phoning them - they were really helpful I have to submit a form to them for so they can research for me. It is very busy at this time following the recent interest in WW1 so will probably be while coming back to me. For info there is a £15 fee which they will return if they cannot find anything - not bad eh?
I'll let you know.
Regards
David
