Find out more about your family history

If the records exist, the museum can provide detailed reports on family members who served in the regiment. To provide this service and for any photocopying, the museum will require a payment of £50 to be paid up front. No charge will be made for an initial assessment by the museum staff of what records exist or when there is very little information available.

You can carry out your research either by visiting the museum or we can post the information to you. If you are planning to visit the museum, we advise you to arrange a date, so that we can find the relevant documents for you in advance.

The Fusilier Museum Warwick has its own archive which holds a wealth of information on the history of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. We can provide you with general guidance on family history enquiries as well as identify medals, cap badges, interpreting military records and providing advice on photographs or written materials.

Our archive includes the following:

  • War Diaries for active units in both World Wars

  • Rolls of Honour for both World Wars

  • Casualty lists for the Boer War and World War I

  • POW roll for World War II

  • Army List for officers holding commissions

  • Regimental Journals - the Antelope and the Fusilier

  • Medal rolls for the Queen's Sudan Medal 1896-98 and the Khedive's Sudan Medal 1896-1908; the Military General Service 1793-1814; India General Service 1854-1895; India General Service 1908; Indian Mutiny; South Africa 1853

  • Personal ephemera that have been donated to us

  • Secondary source military reference books

We do not hold personal service records unless they have been donated to the museum. First World War records are held at the National Archives (although some were destroyed during bombing), and Second World War documents are held at the Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow.
