Cheers, that's a useful archive.
I'm trying to do something similar with Commandant's names. Only have around 70 so far.

I am trying to discover more of my Grandfather's history who arrived in the UK from Rimini at around 1947 -1948, originally from Ukraine, and was at a camp near Newhaven East Sussex England for some time I believe. I cannot find much. Please can you point me in the direction of resources, would any any camp books /documents / photos be kept about this time?

Thanks Luke

I am hoping you may be able to help my husband Adrian trace the whereabouts of his father Heinz Josef Romer, who was a German POW in Essex. His father married his mother on 30th October 1948 and he went back to Germany(Frankfurt) on his own.My husband was born in June 1949 and his father left before this so they have never met. His mother and Father divorced in 1954 and the divorce paper's say his father was represented by Josef Schon who we believe was a catholic priest reading an affidavit on his father's behalf. We do not have a DOB or any other information regarding him except they lived in Braintree, Essex so it could be he was at camp78 -High Garret which is reasonably close? His mother said his father was in the luftwaffe.
Many thanks
Louise

Hi.
I am trying to trace my fathers military history during ww2.
As far as we know he was stationed on the Channel Islands and had a POW
number B543104.
We think he may have met my mother in the Lothian area of Scotland.
His name was Werner Leifer, he died in 1999 and we never really got any information about his time before or during the war.
We think his family are from the Erfurt region.
Regards
John.

Hi John, hi Louise

Your best bet is to approach the Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt), Postfach 51-06-07, D-13400, Berlin, Germany, where your relatives' German Armed Forces service records should be held (along with some British records which were transferred there).  (There's a website, too, with advice).

You can also contact the Red Cross, in writing, only.  Address is:  International Committee of the Red Cross, Archives Division, 19 Avenue de la Paix, CH-1202 Geneva.

More details of the above, and much more, can be downloaded from the website of The National Archives.  Look for "In-depth research guides" and then "Prisoners of war in British hands".

Good luck - do let us know how you get on

Robin
