William Cooney b1873 attested 1894 South Lancs Regt - Regimental No 4622
« on: Saturday 18 December 21 17:21 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Can anyone advise how I can see William's record?  Ancestry has alerted me to a record on their UK, Royal Hospital Chelsea Pensioner Soldier Service Records, 1760-1920.  Is there anywhere I can see the attestation papers online?

Many thanks, Kit

His attestation papers seem to be online at FMpast.

They are also on FindMyPast.

There are 4 pages: attestation, description, statement of service, and military history (1894-1906). Father Patrick, mother Mary, sister Alice all in St Helens.

Isn't that just typical.  I let my FindMyPast subscription lapse in the past few months as I found I wasn't using it!!

Oh well, I'll need to add it to the list to look up if I do a 'free trial' at some stage in the future.

thanks for letting me know.
