We are always willing to do our best to help in this regard. With a history dating back 160 years, it helps if you can provide us with as much information as possible about when you think that the person you are looking for was with us. Due to new data protection regulations relating to the sharing of personal information on living individuals, we are unable to answer enquiries on persons who joined the company after 1935.
Typically, we can provide information such as their regiment, their employee number and the dates they joined and left the company. We do not keep personal information on individuals’ military records, nor do we record their regimental number or other personal information.
However, we do have something called a ‘succession number’, which may well represent the regimental number, and it is sometimes possible to obtain a military file with that. Depending on when they worked for us, we may have more detailed information we can give you.
All our archive records from 1859 to date, including hard copy logbooks, are currently being catalogued by the London Metropolitan Archives and are under restricted access. Therefore, please allow at least fifteen working days for a response to correspondence enquiring about former commissionaires.
If you would like us to search for an ancestor or friend, please submit your request to:
