Strange questions, but does anyone know if there's a record of POW's during WW2?

The records of some British and commonwealth POWs are held by the National Archives. They're known to be incomplete though. Not all are available online so you may need to go to Kew.

Thank you. That has given me a starting point.

Intriguing, can you explain OP?

My grandfather was a POW in Changi jail. I've never been able to find a record.

Fascinating/traumatic family history OP. Good luck with the search.
