Apparently this was my grandads service number but I'm stumped on finding any records

WW1 or WW2?

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

Welcome to Rootschat, Sammyc70.

What was his name, and where does that number come from? Was he army, navy, air force? UK or another country? Where and when was he born?

A Google search throws ups some mentions of Arthur Webster P/KX 96907 in Facebook groups. P/KX 96907 appears to be a Royal Navy service number. As KGarrad says, his records won't be online but you can apply to the Ministry of Defence for a copy: https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records/apply-for-someone-elses-records

See https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/NavalNumbers for an explanation of the P and the K.
