Admiralty: Service Records, Registers, Returns and Certificates
The majority of this series consists of service records of sea, marine and naval officers.
It includes commission and warrant books, succession books, and registers of shore appointments, as well as some service registers. There are collections of passing certificates for lieutenants and warrant officers, returns to the 1822 survey of officers' ages, and leave books.
A large collection of volumes concerns applicants for admission to Greenwich Hospital. Another consists of the records of the Charity for the Relief of Sea Officers' Widows. Among the remaining records are nominations for naval cadetships and the parochial registers of some dockyard and barrack churches.
