What can these records tell me?

Each record is an original transcript. The majority of the information here has been compiled from service records, the Soldiers Died in the Great War database and medal records. All records will have at least one image (the average is four per record)

The amount of information listed varies, but the Liverpool Pals records usually include a combination of the following information about your ancestor:

  • Name
  • Soldier number
  • Rank
  • Company
  • Platoon
  • Awards
  • Discover More about the Liverpool Pals

    These records will allow you to discover, perhaps for the first time, which battalion your relative served in (information not given on medal records).

    The Liverpool Pals were officially the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th (Service) Battalions of The Kings (Liverpool Regiment). The Pals Regiments were the brainchild of Lord Derby, allowing young men to serve with their friends, neighbours, work colleagues or even team mates. These records list nearly 7,000 men who made up the original members in 1914.
