German record cards of British and Commonwealth prisoners of war and civilian internees during the Second World War.
Use this service if you would like to request a search of uncatalogued records within the WO 416 series by name of individual.
If the record is about you, make a request for free under the terms of the Data Protection Act.
If the record is not about you, please be aware: we plan to fully catalogue the the entire WO 416 series by name of individual and make available in Discovery by the end of the year 2021 You may wish to wait until then, and carry out this search yourself for free.
How it works
Following our search, if we find that the record can be opened, we will send you a copy via email. The record will then be catalogued in Discovery when the whole piece it sits within is fully catalogued.
Our team will contact you via email or post with the results of the search within 20 working days.
There is key information about this project and its timetable for completion in the ‘Arrangement’ section.
How much does it cost?
There is a fee of £24.35 for the search. This fee covers the time taken to conduct the search and provide you with a copy.
