Mark Bayley from TheGenealogist.co.uk explains the casualty lists, interviewed by The Nosey Genealogist

Was your ancestor in the thick of it in The Great War? TheGenealogist has just added 600,000 casualty records for Diamond subscribers to access, with many more records to come.

TheGenealogist launched at Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2013' a major new military collection to help you find out more about your ancestors who fought in The Great War. The collection is a list of soldiers of all ranks who were reported as injured, missing or prisoners of war by The War Office.

According to War Office statistics, the First World War claimed the lives of over 700,000 British soldiers. 170,000 were captured as prisoners of war and a staggering 1.6 million soldiers were injured. Now with the new collection of Casualty Lists, you can see the names behind the figures!

This unique resource is available as a fully searchable database for the first time.

There are over 600,000 records available at launch which will grow to cover the entirety of World War One. From the first records of British losses through to early 1919, there's more information than ever for family historians to access, to find out what their ancestors did in the Great War. With casualty records listing all ranks from war office published lists, rolls of honour and other reports of the time, it's all on TheGenealogist.

The coverage at launch covers the War Office's Weekly Casualty Lists' from 1917-18 and this will be expanded by the daily casualty lists to cover from September 1914 to the last reports of 1919, as reports were still being published well after the war had officially ceased.
