Royal Marines records now online

From the National Archives at Kew - the service registers of some 110,000 seamen who joined the Royal Marines between 1842 and 1936 are now available online to search and download.

Searches can be performed under surname, forename, register number and date of enlistment, and may uncover the names of ships and shore stations served on, details of conduct, medal entitlement and much more.

For more information, TNA has a dedicated page to the records at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/royalmarines.asp.
