Merchant Navy Association Research Service

Sorry . . . . now withdrawn

Merchant Seafarers records before 1918 were mostly destroyed in the late 1960s except for the records of Ship's Masters.
It may be possible to trace Merchant Seafarers between 1914/18 by their medal cards.
Ship voyages and service medal entitlements can be investigated at the National Archives Kew.

UPDATE: 1st September 2015

Sadly, we do not have a research service now after our last researcher Don died.
Ideally you need to be in the London area for reasonable access to the National Archives, Kew.
There is a list of Researchers on the National Archives website.
