AIF SERVICE RECORDS

If you are seeking information on a family member who served in the First AIF, I can help you track down their records. We can also provide some details of their unit history, where they fought and, as appropriate, Red Cross Missing Bureau investigations. If your relative is buried overseas we can provide the location of their Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery or memorial.

We will provide a report that includes documents, maps and recommendations that can be individually tailored to meet your needs for either family research or trips to the battlefields:

  • Provision and interpretation of individual First AIF service records (at cost of purchase from NAA)
  •  AIF unit Nominal Rolls and Embarkation Rolls
  •  Casualty Lists and Honour Rolls
  •  Cemetery locations and details
  •  Regimental histories and other source documents
  •  Medals / Awards and citations / Unit colour patches

 

Note that at this time we are restricting our research tasks to those men who served in the First AIF (some may also have had earlier Boer War service).  We cannot as yet undertake World War Two searches, as these files have not yet been digitized and some are still embargoed under the auspices of the Privacy Act.
