Medal Recipients

Search this website

This page is part of the Family History in India website, which is designed to help people trace their British and European ancestry in colonial India. The purpose of this particular page is to provide lists of recipients of medals in British India.

Kevin Asplin has transcribed the names of all 50,700 men of the British Forces who received the Indian Mutiny medal, as well as the 5,059 recipients who served in 1st Madras Fusiliers, 3rd Madras Fusiliers, 1st Bengal Fusiliers, 2nd Bengal Fusiliers, 1st Bombay Fusiliers, the Lahore Light Horse and 'A Troop' Madras Horse Artillery. He has also listed the 64 staff and pupils of La Martiniere College, Lucknow who were recipients.

He has published full details of members of the British Forces who received the medal in a book The Indian Mutiny Medal Roll (British Forces) 1857-1859. Kevin has kindly allowed the publication on this website of names from this book, as well as full details of recipients from the HEIC Army, which are not included in the book.
