Start screen "Find a will"

The digital collection British Soldier’s Wills is a project of the UK government in which some 280,000 soldier’s wills between 1850 and 1996 have been digitized. These wills are part of a general database for probate search in the United Kingdom. The Original wills are kept by Her Majesty’s Court and Tribunal Service (HMCTS). In the simple search mode you can search for name and year of death. The advance search mode adds the possibilty to search also fro first names, the day and moth of death, and regimental number. You have to register to view the digitized wills, but you can search without registration. The interface of this database is in English.
