Uachtanna Saighdiúirí – ábhar nua eisithe

The National Archives holds a collection of soldiers’ wills for Irishmen who served in the British army in the 19th and early 20th century. These wills were made by non-commissioned soldiers who were encouraged by the army to make a will before leaving for active service.

 

There is a small number of wills surviving for Irishmen who served in the British army in the late 19th century and during the South African wars of 1898-1902; however, the vast majority of the collection dates from the First World War. We have digitised all these records and the entire collection is now available free online where researchers will be able to search the collection and view digitised images of the original wills.
