Possibly the same records as on ancestry.co.uk, in which case it majors on WW1 (army & navy).
I could find no information on relatives involved in WW2 (RAF & Navy), however, thankfully, they all survived so maybe this data relates to those that didn't get through that conflagration.
But did get some valuable information about extended family members from WW1.

Er, maybe true!
Update.
Still no details found for (my) WW2 survivors.
Also, on first WW1 veteran searched only one result returned (2 from ancestry.co.uk) and that was only a summary (still useful details) with a link to the image at discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk where payment is required.

See GlasgowGrey's post.
