I wonder if anyone can advise me on the next step in searching for my grandfathers naval records, I have practically no information, we have a photo that has been identified as a Royal Navy WW1 uniform, a naval charity has searched records and hasn’t been able to find anything, i’ve Tried a military website to no avail, any advice would be most welcomed...

 

thanks

I believe records can be found online up till sometime in the 1920s however, if you're not able to check online and no one here is able to help, then the National Archives is probably the only option.

If your grandfather served at a later date, contacting the MOD is the way to go https://www.gov.uk/guidance/request-records-of-deceased-service-personnel

As Owen has mentioned, details will help.

If you can provide details of his full name and date of birth/death then I will have a look for you.  Any other details would help, such as wife's name, where born/died.

Hi Owen, is this a privately message having trouble working out if this is the public forum?

Hi Jordan, no not private - you are on the open forum.  I have just sent you a Private Message, so easier for you to reply to that.  Basically, if you click on my name, above my avatar, on any of my posts within the thread, it will take you to my profile and you should see an envelope at the top with message written by it...that's the fella you need to send a PM.

For pre-1928 RN service records you can search, buy & download them here for a couple of quid:

Other options for later records are listed here:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
