WarBrides

WarBrides is an online index of passenger records for thousands of British women who married Allied servicemen during World War II.

Given in search results are the names of the women, the ships on which they sailed, their ports of departure, and their destinations. The original records (which may be ordered for a fee) may include "addresses in the UK and at the destination, the service details of the husband, names and details of children and the name of the next of kin who will be responsible for the bride when she arrives," among other details.
