At Irish Mariners, researcher David Snook has built an index to 16,000 Irish-born merchant seamen who served between 1918 and 1921, and whose ID cards (called CR 10 cards) are in the Southampton (England) Civic Archives.

Irish Mariners index entries give the mariner’s name, ID number, birth date and place, next of kin and dates of voyages.

Snook also offers contact information and ordering tips for requesting photocopies of the original cards—which bear photos of the mariners—from the Southampton archives. It’ll cost around 2.5 pounds (about $5) plus postage and possibly a research fee, depending on the information you provide.
