Family Research

Increasing numbers of people are undertaking major research to find out more about their relations who have served in The Guards regiments. Many of these people ring the museum to ask us to search the archives for details about these former soldiers. Unfortunately, we do not hold any service records on individuals as these are still maintained by the Regimental Headquarters (RHQ) of each regiment. Regimental photographs are also held by the RHQs.

Please do not write to us or call as we cannot assist you.

Those seeking information should write to the relevant RHQ directly. All five RHQs are based in Wellington Barracks the address of which is as follows:

Wellington Barracks
Birdcage Walk
London SW1E 6HQ

Alternatively you can ring them on:

Grenadier Guards 020 7414 3284
Coldstream Guards 020 7414 3246
Scots Guards 020 7414 3324
Irish Guards 020 7414 3297
Welsh Guards 020 7414 3291

Please understand that Regimental Archivists work on a voluntary basis and are therefore a limited resource. A written application might prove a more effective approach.
