Soldiers’ Wills

The National Archives of Ireland holds a collection of the wills of Irish soldiers who died while serving in the British Army. Most of these date from World War I but there is a small number from the late 19th Century and from the period of the South African War, 1899-1902. The documents have been digitised by the National Archives and are now available free online.
