Somewhere in France Research Services

Did you have a relative who served in the Great War?

Somewhere in France
offer a bespoke research service, aimed at helping you discover the truth behind those frustratingly obscure family legends. Our experienced researchers can navigate the complex and confusing network of military archives and civilian record offices.

Regimental War Diaries; casualty returns; individual records of officers and enlisted service personnel; statutory registers of births, deaths and marriages. These are just a few of the many sources we will consult in order to assemble the fullest possible account of your relative’s time with the Colours.

The initial consultation is free, so there’s nothing to lose. Email your questions to or write to Somewhere in France, 27 Priestfield Road,
Edinburgh, EH16 5HU

If any information has survived, we promise to find it - and at a reasonable price.

Would you like a photograph of a particular grave?

Somewhere in France
