Is "Ancestry" the best site? I tried the 14-day trial of one site and I thought it was terrible. There was a government-run (I think) site with some war service records. I paid something like $5.00 for a service card from them, and it was little more than a card with the guy's name scribbled on it. That was from "the national archives".

Only about 30% of WWI service records survive- Ancestry is the place to check for those surviving records.

National Archives website is where you can download medal cards (as far as I know they only cover those who served overseas and all of these survive).
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi Ian,as aghadowey says they are not all there.I have lots for my great uncle Alexander,yet there is practically nothing for his brother Samuel even though they served in the same regiment and died within months of each other.I'll have another look but I haven't come across anything for William McChesney Allingham,was he from Glasgow too?

Thanks for posting. I had forgotten about the British styles on the dates (with day, then month), so I had incorrectly noted the death as Aug. 11, rather than Nov. 8. I will give the site a try and see if they have anything on the other four soldiers who were relatives.

I am on there now if you want a hand Ian,will need their names though.The only other thing I can see for William is the Medal Index Card,which is all I got for my Samuel,nothing but the name and regiment on it.

The easy one would be Jimmy Hollway, killed on July 30, 1918 in France. Private with the Gordon Highlanders. 5th Battalion. Service No. S/13205. He is buried in Rouen. He listed as simply "J Hollway" on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
