Military

Military Pitmans originating in the north Gloucestershire area have been discovered via records on websites such as Ancestry and findmypast, local newspapers (especially the Cheltenham Chronicle & Graphic during World War 1), and the Commomonwealth War Graves Commission.

This section grew out of research to differentiate Pitmans from the Tewkesbury area who served in World War 1, but will also include soldiers from the nineteenth century and earlier as we discover their details. The lives of some of those listed here are given in more detail elsewhere on the site, as this section concentrates on their military service.
