I used this search to locate this record in the 1921 census:
I am specifically interested in this entry because it says Army. I looked a little more at the article The British Army overseas in 1921 and it does state:
The British Army overseas in 1921 is now easy enough to find. Findmypast has comprehensively indexed the 1921 census of England & Wales and also produced a handy table showing the various worldwide locations – which includes Ireland and the Channel Islands – where the British Army was stationed.
I know that my wife's late grandfather was born in Peshawar, Bengal, India in 1914 as I have his birth certificate. His father:
- William Henry Baker
- Private No. 8187
- 1st Royal Sussex Regiment
I know that I could just purchase the image for £3.50 but I wondered if anyone knew if these Army 1921 Census records included the soldiers number? As that would really be the only way for me to identify if he was my wife's great grandfather.
I see there are several pieces for India:
- 28116: India
- 28117: India
- 28118: India
- 28119: India
- 28120: India
- 28121: India
- 28122: India
- 28123: India
- 28124: India
I tried to find out what information these records would include. I appreciate any clarification.
I did ask a question some years ago (Verify facts about military service and use of alias) about him. The answers there are useful because they qualify his military activity.
