In 1801, 469,188 in­di­vid­u­als were in the army, navy or mer­chant fleet. In 1813, the Bri­tish Army num­bered over 250,000 men. That equates to around 10 per cent of the male pop­u­la­tion, ex­clud­ing chil­dren and the el­derly. So mil­i­tary records are a good source to find miss­ing an­ces­tors.
