At the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regimental Museum, we’re happy to help you conduct any research


Personal service papers of the soldiers who served in the regiment are not part of the museum collection. Surviving papers for soldiers discharged prior to 1920/21 are held by The National Archives, Kew, while papers of soldiers discharged after that date are held by the MoD’s Army Personnel Centre. Most other documents that were held by the Regiment have been deposited in the Kent History and Library Centre in Maidstone.

We are happy to help with any research and family history enquiries where possible, and will offer the utmost support to help you with your research. You can also download the full document detailing our policy for research requests below.
