Explore new rolls of honor, baptism and burial records this Findmypast Friday.

Did your Caribbean ancestors serve with the British military during the First World War? You could find out in our latest releases.

Trace military ancestors and their incredible stories in our new Caribbean Rolls of Honor. The records list soldiers from Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago who served with the British Armed Forces during World War 1.

As well as soldiers of Afro-Caribbean descent, our new rolls of honor also include men from the Indian subcontinent, like Privates Nagir Khan and Bagwan Singh. They were most likely descendants of indentured laborers.

Unlock more of your family heroes’ remarkable stories in our vast archive of military medal rolls and honors. Highlights include Campaign, Gallantry & Long Service Medals & Awards, and Knights of the Realm & Commonwealth Index.

We’ve added over 7,000 baptism records from Sutton-at-Hone, Woolwich and St Mary Cray. Use them to discover new Kent family milestones.

Baptism records are essential for getting further in your family tree. They can reveal your ancestors' names, birth, and baptism dates, where they lived, and importantly, their parents' details.

Uncover your ancestor’s final resting place in Kent with over 5,000 new burial records from Eltham and Thames & Medway.

Findmypast is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Kent family records online. You can also delve into marriages and banns, wills and probate indexes, and poor law union records from the Garden of England.

This week, we’ve released four brand new papers and added more pages to 10 publications.
