Army widows pensions application and records
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 14:00 BST (UK) »
I understand these are online recently.

John White 1774-1832 - wife's name Janet - he was a Captain in 3rd Ceylon Regt and died in Irvine, Ayrshire.

Any look up available?

There are quite a few pages, some local libraries have free access to F M P

thanks Rosie. Thinking of paying as I go on FindMyPast. You get up to 60 credits.

That will only get you 6 pages.  Often these records have virtually blank pages in amongst them for which you would be charged 10 credits.  You may be better with a 1 month subscription though you would need to check which 'package' includes these records.

There is more than one file for this on FindMyPast - one just has a couple of pages, the other has lots of documentation about marriage, baptisms, cause of death, burial, wife's death etc.
