RNVR World War Two
« on: Friday 25 January 19 15:51 GMT (UK) »
A long shot ...
Would anyone know if there was a list of the people who belonged to the RNVR in Word War Two, please? And if so how I could access it?

Service records for people serving after 1920 are still with the MOD.

But there is a National Archives guide here:

Many thanks for your prompt reply. I have now chatted with the National Archives and they have pointed me to a couple of websites but my problem is that I do not have a name! All I know is that this person came from Sunderland. As you can see this makes it very complicated.

I just wanted to say that I have found the person in question and many thanks for your help.
