Links and resources

Below are links to some websites that I have found useful, they are not run by me and I can't guarantee any information on them (usual disclaimers apply) they will open in a new window.

This site holds a wide range of information about soldiers killed in WW1 and WW2 drawn from a variety of resources including newspaper reports and obituaries. It has an online database where you can search for your name of interest and a free service to search their full database (not all online yet) and report what they hold for that soldier with a small fee if you choose to order a copy of the information. 

- an amazing site with a searchable database of all the inscriptions from this Liverpool cemetery.

Toxteth Park Cemetery - searchable database of the burial records from this Liverpool Cemetery, most records give date of burial, age at death and address of the deceased.

The Long Long Trail - a truly amazing resource with information about everything WW1. Also has information on tracing your military ancestors and is very useful for finding out where a particular battalion was during the war.

The Great War Forum - forum associated with the Long Long Trail website, incredibly knowledgable and helpful members and free membership!

RootsChat - another forum, this one with a genealogy focus and a very good military section, very helpful and knowledgeable members and free membership.

Liverpool Ancestral Trails - a research service for Liverpool genealogy

Liverpool A-Z - street map of Liverpool circa 1900

CWGC - the Commonwealth War Graves Commission - website with a searchable database of all War Graves from WW1 and WW2, their new search engine is very good and you can filter your search results by fields such as regiment, rank and number.

Liverpool Scottish, Over One Hundred Years of Regimental History - the 'virtual museum' for the Liverpool Scottish archive. Includes images from the Book of Remembrance.

Liverpool Hall of Remembrance - searchable database of the Liverpool Roll of Honour

Thankyou very much for doing this research.I was randomly making Google searches and came across the blog. Edward Burston was my late mother's cousin. I had found him on a census, having known nothing about him and now you have brought him to life in great detail. Charles Burston, with whom he lived, was my Grandad. I also found some Anfield burials of Burstons with another of your links! I'm so grateful! Stephanie Tulej
