Concientious Objector Records

Postby hobbsp » Fri Apr 18, 2014 5:37 pm

My Great Great Uncle William Frederick Hobbs 1882 was a Concientious Objector but went to WWi as a Butcher. I have a military pose picture of him with a pinny and side of beef. Where would I find records of his application and refusal to be exempt ?

There are few Military Exemption Tribunals whose records survive, the Middlesex Tribunal are in series MH 47 at The National Archives, but I can't see him there. Some others may be held locally in County Record Offices.

The tribunal proceedings were often reported in local newspapers.
