The number of veterans living in the Hemsworth constituency is not held.

However, the number of veterans in receipt of UK Armed Forces compensation or pensions by location can be found at the following link:

Please note, individuals may be in receipt of more than one compensation and/or pension scheme. Therefore, subtotals cannot be summed.

In July 2020, Parliament approved the inclusion of a veteran question in the England and Wales 2021 census which, for the first time, will enable Government to identify the number of veterans by location.
