About Us

The creator of BradfordPals1914-1918 was born and brought up in Bradford but left West Yorkshire in 1980 to join the Royal Navy.  He has since lived all over the UK and presently resides in Hampshire. He has also lived in Norway and Germany.  In the 35 years since leaving Bradford he has been lucky enough to travel to many parts of the world but has never forgotten his Yorkshire roots.

He has been carrying out Genealogical Research on his own family and for others since 2005. A lifetime interest in History and Military History in particular, was focused in 2009 when he came across the list of the first thousand men which was published in the Bradford Daily Telegraph on 6th November 1914. The list gave the names and occupations of these men and for some reason this sparked a need to find out more.

The result has been 6 years of research into those men which he now wants to share with others in the simple hope that they will be found and remembered by their descendants.
