While it doesn't seem likely that many of you had an ancestor who was killed or wounded in the Crimean War, this database may prove useful to those of you who do:

“This database contains details of the men of the 30th Foot (Cambridgeshire) Regiment who were casualties during the Crimean War. The SURNAME is mandatory, the rest of the search fields optional. Those mentioned here may not necessarily have had Cambridgeshire connections- they are here because they served with the 30th Foot. This is purely an index but the reference can be looked up in archive copies of the London Gazette (marked LG in the results).”

Results provide rank, status (killed or wounded), date killed or wounded, action at which killed or wounded, and date notice appeared in London Gazette.


Note: Not familiar with the Crimean War? You probably have heard of the Charge of the Light Brigade...
