If your relative did serve with the Hampshire or Royal Hampshire Regiment we can probably give you a good idea as to what he was doing and so fill in some of the gaps that you may have in research. We may not hold all the records but we can hopefully point you in the right direction and should be able to give an indication as to what the man was doing.
The Museum offers a research service which is aimed primarily at family historians though we regularly assist local history groups and schools who are researching the names on the village war memorial.
Please note that research can take a lot of time and therefore we ask for a donation of £20 for all enquiries; even if we cannot find anything we have still had to search through multiple sources. We will not start any research without payment.
Please note: if you are researching anyone who served in World War 2 and later, you need to obtain their Service Record first before contacting the museum. You can do this via:
We can also be contacted by post at:
The Royal Hampshire Regiment Museum
We do not accept research enquiries by telephone as we are unable to answer them while on the telephone! Enquiries sent by email will not be answered without payment.
Your enquiry must be accompanied by the £20 research fee, payable to ‘The Royal Hampshire Regiment Museum’. This can be refunded if it is clear from the outset that we will be unable to help.
