Didn't Find Your Relative/Friend? Let Us Know!
We need your help: Our attempt at an H.M.S. Hood Crew List is not complete. Based on known crew complement authorisations for each commission, we know Hood should have had approximately 8,000 to 9,000 men who served in her during her long career. Due to irregularities, complement number fluctuations, temporary postings, etc., the figure could be even higher. Based on the current estimate however, we currently have the names of approximately half the number of men who actually served in the ship. Additionally, the information we have on many men is scant at best. We are always on the lookout for more names and additional details. With this in mind, we need assistance:
- If you know of a man who definitely served in Hood but is not listed here, or, if you have additional information about a man already in the Crew List, please let us know via the H.M.S. Hood Crew List Input Form.
- If you think a relative may have served in Hood (or you know he did, but have no idea as to when or what his rank was), then you should consider obtaining his naval service records. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions section for instructions on doing this. If you confirm he was in Hood, then please let us by sending an H.M.S. Hood Crew List Input Form
