Service lists for the Army, Navy and Air Force

Service lists contain the names of serving military personnel. Some, especially the early lists contain names only of senior officers: captains and ship's commanders in the Navy; colonels and above in the Army.

The following guide details the service lists held by the British Library. A few army lists not held by the Library are included and they are noted as 'not found in the BL catalogue'.
