Battle of Jutland records on FindmyPast

FindmyPast ( has uploaded a collection of records for the Battle of Jutland. From the site:

This new collection has been specially created to bring together the names of those who participated in the battle of Jutland between 31 May and 1 June 1926. The collection is not comprehensive and there may be some gaps. It was created from the following series found at The National Archives in London.

ADM 159: Royal Marines, service records
ADM 188: Royal Navy Seamen, service records
ADM 196: Royal Navy officers, service records
ADM 240: Royal Naval Reserve officers, service records
ADM 377: Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, ratings’ service records

The FindyPast collection, entitled British Royal Navy & Royal Marines, Battle Of Jutland 1916 Servicemen (, also uses transcripts created by Naval and Military Press, though no source details are provided for these.

Also released is an update to its Ireland, Poverty Relief Loans 1821-1874 collection (, which sees an additional 5000 records added, although again, there is no information as to the nature of which areas these new records might concern.
