Would you please advise where I can view (on line) the service records (ledgers) for Newfoundland Seaman of the Newfoundland Royal Navy Reserve.

Thank you,
Trevor

It took me a while to find it again but I think this is what you're looking for.

https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/oclc/866435203?availability=Family%20History%20Library

It's not indexed and searchable so your best bet is to find your ancestor's service number. Each film has an index cross referencing names and service numbers. If I'm remembering correctly, all but one of the record groups are in order of service number, more of less. Sorry, I can't remember which one wasn't.

A few years ago I was able to find the complete set of service records for my great uncle.

Good luck!
Leslie

Thank you.
Can these records also be viewed on a governmental website?

See Military Records Database | The Rooms for a searchable database of service files.

Hope this helps

Thank you for this link. This appears to be a database for The Newfoundland Regiment only and does not contain Newfoundland Royal Naval Reserve service records.

Here is a link to a filtered list UK National Archives. You will need to register for an account to download materials.

Thank you Tony.
Most of these require a visit to The National Archives premises (not too sure whether it has reopened yet)
I have started to transcribe the medal roll for the Newfoundland Royal Navy Reserve. This is still very much a work in progress but can be found here: https://www.jutlandcrewlists.org/newfou ... al-reserve
