About Medical Staff Who Died During Conflict
Naval & Military Press Military History Books

This database has been provided so that information relating to medical staff (male or female) who died in conflict can be collected in one database. The criteria for entries is that the person should be a Doctor, Nurse or some other medical person. Those from the Army Medical Corps, St John's Ambulance, the V.A.D. and other groups should be entered. If we do not have the title relevant to the person or the conflict listed then use Unknown or one of the other 'Other' status - you will then be contacted so the entry can be added.

The database is also searchable and you can add to the information you have added at a later date - please supply your own password to allow you re-access. Please search the database prior to making an entry. If you find the person that you are looking for but believe the information to be incorrect then please do not make a second entry for the same person - use the email address provided to contact the original submitter.

Note: The searchable database comprises entries that have been submitted and have been authenticated. Once an item has been transferred to the main database it is no longer editable.
