Research

At the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum

We have a small team of experienced archival researchers at the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum.  Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept any new enquiries, as we have a backlog that we are in the process of clearing.

We do not anticipate being able to process any new enquiries for the foreseeable future.  If this situation changes we will add a notice to this page.

 

WWI Drop-in sessions

Although we are unable to accept any new research enquiries for the time being, we are pleased to say that we are still able to offer ‘drop-in Tuesdays’, allowing members of the public the opportunity to book an hour-long appointment with a researcher to discuss any research relating to the WWI.  Please note that appointments must be made in advance if you would like to meet with one of our volunteer researchers in person.  To make an appointment please email research@sogm.co.uk.  The time slots available are 10am-11am, 1pm-2pm, and 3pm-4pm.

Unique Source Material

We hold many unique records within our archive.  We are pleased to say that we will very soon be offering access to the following original source material;

  • Officer’s papers
  • Enlistment records

We will soon have a separate page containing a searchable list of names relating to the above material.  Customers will then be able to purchase any material required, and the information will then be sent over by one of our archival volunteers.

Lots of regimental memorabilia and items for all the family in our on line museum shop. There are some great offers as well!
