Closure of a digital version of the MH 106 series

FOI request reference: F0050984
Publication date: December 2017


I would like to see any correspondence or papers relating to discussions to close an online version of MH 106 (War Office: First World War Representative Medical Records of Servicemen) for 100 years.


No information held


I can confirm that The National Archives does not hold this information.

Please note that the MH 106 series consists of 2,389 open paper records. The National Archives does not publish an online version of these records on our website.

A portion of the MH 106 series is now available online at under license from The National Archives. As these records contain confidential medical information, Findmypast are operating a rolling publication schedule as records pass the anniversary of 100 years since the latest date on each record. This process is on-going and Findmypast will continue to add to their online presentation until all the records are available. Those records not currently published on the Findmypast website are not considered closed as they are freely available for public viewing in their original paper form via our reading rooms at The National Archives, Kew.
