Other Ranks Died (this contains nearly one million individual records)
Widows and Dependents of Other Ranks Died (in excess of one million records)
Other Ranks Survived: Requested/Rejected/Receiving Pension (over 2.5 million records)
Officers survived and Officers' Widows (approximately 150,000 records)
Merchant Naval Cards (about 5,000 records)
