Even if you don’t have a recipient on your family tree it would be interesting to find out if anyone from your ancestors village or town was awarded the highest bravery award.

 

The Victoria Cross is Britain’s highest award for bravery “in the face of the enemy”. Our latest record collection provides extensive details of the 1,354 soldiers, sailors and civilians under military command who had earned it up to 2007.

Victoria Cross Medals, 1857–2007, provides each recipient’s name, birth and death dates, their last known rank or unit and a full description of the courageous act that won them the medal. For most of these heroes, you’ll even find a portrait photo, plus details of their final resting place.
