According to the Government website, You can only apply for World War 1 medals if the original was returned.

I guess you could ask your relatives whether they have them, or if they know what happened to them?

If they've never been issued then the next of kin can ask for them I believe.

You could also buy replacements if you wanted to

Worcester Medals are a well known company that mounts medals and sells miniatures and replacements.
