More than a name

After the War, communities around Stockport erected memorials to those who had died. The main war memorial is at Stockport Art Gallery and there are other “village” memorials in Bramhall, Bredbury, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Compstall, Gatley, Hazel Grove, Heald Green (Long Lane), Heaton Mersey, Heaton Moor, High Lane, Marple, Reddish and Romiley.

Today, many of the names on those memorials have become just that. Just names. Names of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in two World Wars and other conflicts.

Many, particularly those who died in World War 2 or later, will have relatives who remember them but, for most killed during the Great War, between 1914 and 1918, memories are second, third or fourth hand. These men have, in many cases, become little more than a collection of surnames which are in danger of becoming as historically lifeless as the stone on which their names are carved.

But these were real people. They had family, friends and jobs. They lived in the houses many of us still live in. They went to school where we did. They drank in the same pubs we do. They walked the same streets.

After the Great War, the relatives of the dead were sent the appropriate medals, a bronze plaque and a scroll. The scroll reads:-

“He whom this scroll commemorates was numbered amongst those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger and finally passed out of sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving their own lives that others might live in freedom.

Let those who come after see to it that his name be not forgotten.”

This project is intended to ensure that these men, who gave their lives in the service of their country nearly 100 years ago, are not forgotten.

More than 2800 names are recorded on the various “official” war memorials maintained by the Council and most of the men (and one woman) have now been identified. For some, this has proved impossible and any information, from members of the public, which would identify them would be most welcome. For others, there are only scant details.

But, for the majority, it is possible to tell their stories. Who were they? Did they have family? How did they earn a living? The one thing that unites them is that they died and, in most cases, it has also been possible to establish something of the circumstances of how that happened.
Stockport Art Gallery & War Memorial

There are many more men who had a connection with the Stockport area but, for whatever reason, are not commemorated on an official war Memorial. Perhaps they had been born here, but had moved away. Perhaps their families chose not to have their loved one included. It is hoped that, in due course, at least basic details of these men can be recorded here.

It will be a number of years before the project is complete but the men’s stories will be added periodically as research continues. If you are returning to the site, please check the updates page.

New military collection released online commemorates the 90th Anniversary of First World War I
In commemoration of the 90th anniversary since the end of the First World War Familyrelatives.com is proud to announce the release of a new military collection online.

The Artists Rifles Roll of Honour, the Anzac Roll of Honour and the New Zealand Roll of Honour as well as the Waterloo Roll call, Commissioned Sea Officers of the Royal Navy 1660-1815, British Naval Biographical Dictionary 1849 and the Royal Air Force Lists, all form part of the new collection. The searchable database will enable millions to research their military ancestors with ease.

The Artists Rifles was formed in 1859 as part of the great Volunteer Corps. It comprised various professional painters, sculptors, engravers, musicians, architects and actors raised to defend the British Isles from a French invasion. The regiment became part of the Corps of the Rifle Brigade which was subsequently transformed into the famous 21 Special Air Service Regiment S.A.S (Artists Reserve).

In the 20th century the Artists Rifles was a popular unit with volunteers and attracted recruits from public schools and universities. Over fifteen thousand men passed through the battalion during the war, more than ten thousand of them becoming officers and served in almost every unit of the British Army. The battalion fought in France in the Great War, its battle honours include Passchendaele, the Somme 1918, Cambrai 1918, Pursuit to Mons, and suffered higher casualties than those of any other battalion. Members of the Regiment won eight Victoria Crosses, fifty-six Distinguished Service Orders and over a thousand other awards for gallantry and honour.

The Artist Rifles Roll of Honour provides the name of the Artist, rank, regiment, date and where they died. A list of honours, decorations and commissions are among the records provided.

Prominent members of the unit included Noel Coward, and Sir Barnes Wallis, CBE, FRS and the war poets Siegfried Loraine Sassoon and Wilfred Edward Owen who was killed in action on 4 November 1918, only one week before the end of the war.

The Anzac Roll of Honour 1914 – 1918 commemorates those soldiers who served in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and died in the fateful Dardanelles campaign as well as other Great War battles.

The Roll of Honour, lists nearly 20,000 Australians and New Zealand soldiers who died in the war. In addition to the soldiers’ names, their number, rank, unit. The place and cause of death and date of death are also detailed.

The collection is comprised of a number of sections including Soldiers Verses, photographs stories, notes, letters and diary entries which provide a unique insight of a soldier’s life at war. An official summary of the “Peace Treaty” terms is also available.

New Zealand Roll of Honour 1914 - 1918
The Roll of Honour, lists over 18,000 New Zealand soldiers and officers who died in the war. The list contains members of the New Zealand Expeditionary forces killed in action or died from wounds inflicted, accidents, or disease contracted while on Active Service or those who died after discharge.

In addition to the soldiers’ names, number, rank and unit are detailed as well as the place, cause and date of death.

Royal Air Force Lists
The Lists are a valuable collection of the serving and retired officers of the Royal Air Force including the Reserve and Auxiliary Air Force.

As the junior service - the Royal Air Force was born from the merger of the Royal Flying Corp and the Royal Naval Air service in 1918. Its role in the inter-war years became increasingly important as it helped to maintain Britain's strategic interests from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf and east to India.

These detailed lists feature the Air Ministry, the Air Council and all officer ranks from Air Marshal to Pilot Officer featuring name, rank, date of seniority, unit and location. Additional information includes medical staff, nurses and chaplains, decorations and awards and a list of holders of the Victoria Cross. Every branch of the Royal Air Force at that time is represented.

As part of the new collection the records go back to Royal Navy Sea Officers all the way from 1660 to 1815 including the Napoleonic Wars. The military is not overlooked with the roll call of the Duke Wellingtons Army at Waterloo in 1812.

Waterloo Roll Call
The Waterloo Roll Call includes Commissioned and Non – Commissioned Officers who fought at Waterloo. The collection consists of a number of sections and is arranged by regiments, rank and seniority within regiments. A staff list is shown separately. Biographical information and anecdotes are available on the majority of those listed in the section and on NCO’s who were subsequently commissioned as well as some heroes of the battle. Those killed and wounded are also indicated. British and Hanoverian Army Divisions and an Index of officers are included in the sections.

Commissioned Sea Officers of the Royal Navy 1660-1815
The list was conceived and compiled by David Bonner Smith an Admiralty Librarian. The immense task filled 13 large notebooks and the records lists the name of the Officer, rank and year they were commissioned between 1660 and 1815. Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson as well as Captain Thomas Masterman Hardy and many other Sea Officers of the Royal Navy are available to search.

The British Naval Biographical Dictionary, 1849
A Naval Biographical Dictionary comprising the Life and Services of Every Living Officer in Her Majesty's Navy, from the Rank of Admiral of the Fleet to that of Lieutenant, Inclusive. London, England compiled by John Murray in 1849.

The database consists of authentic family documents and comprises the biography of every living officer in the British Navy. The information will usually cover the individual’s rank, year of commission and details of their naval career. Often further reference to the ship they served on, their command and expeditions are mentioned. The biographies provide a fascinating insight into the expeditions and influence of the British Empire whilst keeping Britain secure and to ensure the flow of ships and goods to supply Britain’s ports and cities.

These records will add to the existing ten million military records and form part of a unique online resource available to military and family historians.

Soldiers' wartime diaries are online
By Lauren Margrave
2/12/2008

DIARIES kept by Surrey soldiers on the front line during the First World War are now available on the internet.

A new archive uploaded by the Royal Surrey Regiment Association fleshes out the history of those whose names are displayed each year on war memorials throughout the county.

Repetitive chores, the stress of days spent on standby for action, sudden death and the evacuation of wounded soldiers are just some of the events recorded in the official war diaries of battalions in The Queen’s Royal (West Surrey) and the East Surrey Regiments.

According to Colonel Tony Ward, president of the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment Association, the digital volume represents a phenomenal research tool for students studying the 1914-18 Great War, and also for local historians.

“These war diaries provide fascinating insights for anyone wishing to undertake research,” he said.

“They tell the story of Surrey’s infantry Regiments. The 25 battalions of The Queen’s Royal Regiment (West Surrey), the 18 battalions of the East Surrey Regiment and eight battalions of the London Regiment, who wore the Queen’s or East Surrey cap badge. Each battalion was about 1,000-strong. On studying these diaries one soon finds inconsistencies of style or detail.”

The diaries also complement the regimental memorabilia, including medals, uniform and weaponry, on display in the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment Museum at Clandon Park.

“During the Great War the Queen’s raised 31 battalions and the East Surrey’s 13 battalions,” explained Col Ward.

“The casualties were horrendous. The Queen’s lost 7,399 officers, NCOs and men. The Surreys had 6,223 officers and rank and file killed. Their names can be seen in the books of remembrance in the regimental chapels and on war memorials.”

It was the sheer number of casualties, which Col Ward found so “mind boggling,” that inspired him to create the archive in the first place.

He said: “The thing that triggered me to put them on the internet was when I read about the East Surrey Regiment being in Dublin four days before war was declared, then being sent 500 reinforcements which bought their number up to 1,000 men.

“They marched to the docks and were in France four days after war was declared and by day 10 they were in combat. Out of 1,000 there were 400 casualties.”

He added: “The First World War has always held a certain grim fascination – its sheer magnitude, the horrific casualties, the bravery, the patriotism, the amazing logistical challenges and the speed of mobilisation. It was a war that need not have happened.

“A war with an unsatisfactory conclusion that directly lead to even greater carnage of the Second World War.”

As well as the First World War diaries, the website of the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment tells the story of the two infantry regiments of Surrey.

It also provides details of the museum at Clandon Park and the Regimental Association, which arranges reunions and looks after the welfare of old comrades. To look at the diaries, visit the website at www.queensroyalsurreys.org.uk

CEF WW1 Soldier Blogs

Index of CEF WW1 Soldiers
This blog is an index of blogs that have been prepared by numerous authors that provide details about soldiers that served with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the Great War (World War One). Although the blog started in February 2007, the date of this posting is updated to record when the last addition has been made.

In order to have some form of standard for the blogs that are being completed, it was proposed that the titles of the new blogs that were being formed have a standard blog address, such as:

cefww1soldiername.blogspot.com

where the soldier's name would be inserted in place of "name" as the "common name" initial followed by the last name.

This blog will be updated to add the names of new blogs as they become available. If you wish to have yours added to the list, please send the details to the CEF Matrix Project. The index will be listed in posts that differentiate the nature of the blog.

War Diaries of the First World War

This database contains the digitised War Diaries of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) units. From the start of the First World War, CEF units were required to maintain a daily account of their “Actions in the Field.” This log was called a War Diary. The War Diaries are not personal diaries, rather they are a historical record of a unit’s administration, operations and activities during the First World War.

State's WWI records searchable online
By Michelle Dupler, Herald staff writer
Scrutinizing 90-year-old military records has been a labor of love for about 60 volunteers across the state over the last 41/2 years.

About 48,000 World War I service statement cards that list information about Washington soldiers who served from 1917-19 have been added to the state's online digital archives, a searchable treasure trove of information for genealogists and family historians.

The digital archive is an online repository for public records that have long-term legal, historical or fiscal significance. The idea is to preserve records in a way that will be searchable for years to come, according to the archive's Web site.

Terri Huntley, volunteer coordinator working in the Secretary of State's Office, said most of the work of reading records and preparing data for online storage is done by volunteers from their homes.

Huntley or someone from the state's archive will photocopy the original records and send a packet off to a volunteer, who pulls out the pertinent information and types it into a spreadsheet. All of them work for free.

Tamlee McGary, a volunteer living in Basin City, said she became involved with the painstaking work of transcribing the service cards because she loves researching family history and wanted to give others the kinds of online resources she uses in her own searches.

"It was a fun way to get involved," McGary said. "I know how valuable records are that are online. Digital records are so much easier to research because you can type in something and it does the work for you. You can look for anything where that name appears. ... It's a wonderful way for people to get to know their families better and appreciate their sacrifices."

The World War I archive will tell researchers who search for a particular name the soldier's serial number, race, date and place of birth, unit assignments, rank and dates served.

They also can see where the soldiers fought and whether they were wounded or disabled.

"The great thing about having these veterans' records available is that thousands of families here in Washington and outside of our state can access them and learn more about a relative who served in World War I," Digital Archivist Kerry Barbour said in a written statement. "The information in these records will help shed light on what these soldiers experienced during the war."

McGary said sometimes as she typed records, she'd be captivated by an unusual name and start looking in the area for living relatives. She even called a few people to tell them what she had found about their ancestors.

"I thought about (the soldiers) a lot," McGary said. "I thought a lot of them were probably leaving a family. In hindsight, we know what happened in the war, but it was probably a lot different than they anticipated it would be. Probably some of them didn't come home. ... Those aren't just names on cards. Those are real people."

Researching British Soldiers Who Served in the 1914-18 Great War
Posted by Alun Hill MCIJ on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 · Leave a Comment

This article is brought to you by In the footsteps BATTLEFIELD TOURS


At In the footsteps BATTLEFIELD TOURS we occasionally receive enquiries about how to trace the records of British soldiers who served in the 1814-18 Great War. We do our best to help when such a request is made, but our resources are limited and we are conscious that our best is often very slow and not always that conclusive. To help those wishing to research records of British Soldiers who served in the 1914-18 Great War we thought that it would be useful if we put together some notes on the basics of how to research this information.


During the Great War of 1914-1918 Britain’s Regular Army was tiny by European standards and was quickly supplemented initially by Reservists and the Territorials. Kitchener’s Army of volunteers were rapidly trained and sent to the front and by 1916 it was necessary to introduce Conscription to make up numbers.


The casualty lists continued to grow at an alarming rate largely because of the very nature of trench warfare. The modern military innovations and communications that we know today simply did not exist and the 1914-18 Great War had developed into one of attrition. As a consequence, the British Army sustained massive fatal casualties averaging around 450 officers and men per day.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC)


The first place to begin your search is the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). They have the most complete record of soldiers (and others) that died in the 1914-18 Great War. This record is available on-line in their ‘Debt of Honour Register’ at http://www.cwgc.org/.


The information contained in the Debt of Honour Register includes the location of the soldier’s grave (or his commemoration, if he has no known grave). It will usually give details of his service number, rank, unit, date of death (if known) and place of burial or commemoration. Other information may be available, but this is dependent on material supplied (or not supplied) by relatives during and after the war. It should also be noted that whilst the CWGC make every effort the Register is not entirely free of errors.

The 1921 Compilation – Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19


An excellent resource for locating those who died in the war is Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19. Originally published in 1921 the compilations consist of 80 volumes for the soldiers with a separate volume for officers. Each volume deals with individual Regiment or Corps, and lists those who died, giving dates, locations, army number. It is not 100% accurate, but an excellent record that was based on regimental records.


These volumes give information that the CWGC does not for example, place of birth, place of residence, place of enlistment and any former regiment being the most common.


A full set of the Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19 is available for the general public to reference in the Birmingham Central Library. Other Central and/or Reference Libraries may also hold copies, but check before going as they often only have the volume relating to the local regiment.


This work can also be obtained from the Imperial War Museum as a searchable CD-ROM and is also available from: http://www.naval-military-press.com/. The CD-ROM has the advantage that the casualties can be searched and sorted, which is a great benefit if you are researching a unit or what happened to a group of friends. Inevitably it does contain some transcription errors – but then again the originals have errors too. Overall, this is an excellent though very expensive resource. Many branches of the Western Front Association have a copy, as do some libraries – including the one at the National Archives.

Genealogy Websites


Military-Genealogy.com the Naval & Military Press’ website for military historians and family history researchers has computerised these records, along with similar records relating to the Second World War, and offer a pay-per-view service to search them. These works are also available as a searchable CD-ROM, published by the Naval & Military Press. For further details visit: http://www.naval-military-press.com/.


Another pay-per-view service is provided by findmypast.com that has made it possible to search for soldiers who died in the 1914-18 Great War on-line. It is also possible to access the registers of war deaths via their website http://www.findmypast.com/HomeServlet. In addition to their pay-per-view service they operate a voucher system whereby vouchers can be purchased from UK stockists or mail order, see their website for details.

Many businesses, organisations, schools and towns created Rolls of Honour after the war. Many of these are now available on-line and can be accessed by searching Google then clicking on the appropriate search result.


In addition to these dedicated Rolls of Honour sites is a particularly good website http://www.roll-of-honour.com/ that is striving to list details of the various War Memorials in the UK. This also has a useful search facility that will interrogate the records they have in their databases.

Soldiers Personal Files


All British soldiers who served in the 1914-18 Great War had a personal file. Around half of these personal files were destroyed in the first German air-raid on London in the Second World War on the night of 7th/8th September 1940. The records that survived the Second World War were released to the UK National Archives: The Public Record Office at Kew in November 1996. Their website can be found at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/. The original documents are now so fragile that only microfilm is available for inspection and whether an individual soldier’s file has survived is entirely random.


Officers’ files had a higher survival rate and about 216,000 were released to the National Archives in February 1998. The criteria for release were that the officer had served in the British Army between 1914 and 1920 and that he had left the Army before 31st March 1922. It is often possible to locate an officer’s file on line, by typing the surname into the National Archives Catalogue accompanied by a record class number. Officers’ files are mostly contained in record series WO 339 or WO 374 (especially Territorial Officers).

The Medal Index and Medal Rolls


Besides a soldier’s (or officer’s) personal file the other major source of information is the Medal Card Index, also in the National Archives. This is the most complete listing of British service personnel in the First World War. The National Archives has now completed the digitizing of the Medal Index. The on-line version is available at http://www.documentson-line.nationalarchives.gov.uk/default.asp


Most soldiers who served with the British Army in the 1914-18 Great War qualified for campaign medals, normally the 1914 (or 1914-15) Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. The Army Medals Office recorded soldiers’ medal entitlement in lists known as rolls. The Index Card available on line provides the reference to where the soldier is listed on the Rolls, which are organised by regiment or corps. The information found on the Medal Card will include the soldier’s name, rank and serial number, his regiment or corps, sometimes his unit (e.g. battalion or Field Company RE), his date of death (if he died during the war), the campaign medals he was awarded and the reference numbers that allow the soldier to be traced on the Medal Rolls, which are not available on line.


It is important to check the actual Medal Rolls because they can give extra vital information about a soldier, such as his battalion, that allows further research to be undertaken. This is particularly true of soldiers who served in the cavalry, yeomanry and infantry, but much less so for the larger corps, such as the Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers and Army Service Corps.

Unit War Diaries


Once a soldier’s unit has been identified it is possible to find out more about it. All units from battalion level (and the battalion’s equivalent in other corps, such as a Field Artillery Brigade) upwards were required to keep War Diaries on active service. These diaries are preserved in the National Archives: The Public Record Office, Kew, in record series WO 95. War Diaries rarely mention ordinary soldiers, but they do provide a detailed account of the unit’s movements and activities.

Regimental Histories


Nearly all infantry regiments and battalions have published histories. These can usually be purchased through that Regiment’s PRI or through most reputable bookshops. On-line bookshops such as Amazon will also have these available.


We hope that the information contained within this article has been of assistance and will help you trace the records of the soldier you are interested in. If you feel that we can be of assistance please email us at inthefootsteps@btinternet.com and we will try to help. Please bear in mind however our opening paragraph, as our resources are limited and we are conscious that our best is often very slow and not always conclusive.

IRISH WORLD WAR I SERVICE RECORDS AND CASUALTIES OF WAR NOW ONLINE
Ancestry.co.uk, the UK’s leading family history website*, today completed the world first online launch of the British Army World War One Service Records, 1914-1920, which detail the full military careers of more than 40,000 Irish soldiers who served during World War One.

Service records contain a variety of information concerning all aspects of the army careers of those who completed their duty or were either killed in action or executed, including the soldier’s name, date and place of birth, address, next-of-kin, former occupation, marital status, medical records, service history, regiment number, locations of service and discharge papers.

Each service record contains an average of 16 pages of personal information; however they can contain as many as 60 pages.

The British Army World War One Service Records, 1914-1920 complement the British Army World War One Pension Records, 1914-1920, which are already online and contain 9.7 million pages of personal information relating to almost one million discharged soldiers, who, having sacrificed their own wellbeing for the war effort, suffered disabling sickness or injuries for which a pension was subsequently granted.

As approximately 60 per cent of the paper originals of the service records were destroyed by fire when the War Office in London was struck by a bomb in 1940 during an air raid, the surviving 32.5 million paper records now online have become known as the ‘Burnt Documents’.

Amongst the remaining service records are those for 40,000 of the 210,000 Irish soldiers who served with the British forces in World War One.

Microfilm of the total 43 million pages of paper originals which comprise the service and pension records are the second most viewed collection at The National Archives, which maintains the collection and is Ancestry.co.uk’s official partner in hosting it online.

Fortunately, the service details of many soldiers whose records were destroyed in 1940 are now available in a separate collection also launched online today. Ireland, Casualties of World War I, 1914-1918 details 50,000 soldiers who at the time of their death in service during World War One were of Irish birth or residence.


The collection was compiled in the 1920s to commemorate the Irish soldiers who died during World War One and was funded by the National War Memorial. Just 108 copies of the eight volume set were printed and distributed around the country’s libraries, each with ornate binding and symbolic borders designed by renowned artist Harry Clarke.

Each soldier’s record typically details their name, age, detail of the death, medal entitlement, and often other personal information. Ireland, Casualties of World War I, 1914-1918 is the only publication to bring so many fallen Irish soldiers from World War One together in one collection.

Ireland, Casualties of World War One, 1914-1918 and British Army World War One Service Records, 1914-1920 are the latest additions to Ancestry.co.uk’s extensive British military collection, which includes the World War One Medal Index Cards, 1914-1922

1 Million New Military Records added to Familyrelatives.com

This autumn marks the 201st anniversary of the beginning of the Peninsular War and to commemorate, the event Familyrelatives.com has added over 1 million army records covering a broad range from 1808 through to De Ruvigny's biographical record of World War I soldiers.




The Peninsular Medal Roll 1808-1814

In 1808 Napoleon deposed the Spanish monarch and replaced him with his brother Joseph Bonaparte. Recognising the increased threat that Napoleon posed to Great Britain - British Forces under the command of Sir Arthur Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington, landed in Portugal to check Napoleon's progress. After 5 years of prolonged and bitter campaigning Napoleon's forces were routed at the Battle of Vitoria, on June 21, 1813 and the liberation of Spain was complete.

The Peninsular Medal Roll is one of most valuable and unique records covering the conflict and sets out invaluable information about some of those who fought in the Iberian Peninsular. The following information is given in the database; Forename, Surname, Rank, Number of Clasps, Particulars of Clasps, Remarks, Regiment.


De Ruvigny's Roll of Honour 1914-1918

We continue to add to our First and Second World War collection and are excited to have added De Ruvigny's Roll of honour (2 volumes). The Roll of Honour includes the Biographies of over 25,000 men although we have currently uploaded 12,500 men who lost their lives in the Great War. The detail varies however, the example below gives a good indication of what kind of information can be found.

BRITISH SOLDIERS ON A REGULAR BASIS IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1918.

At In the footsteps BATTLEFIELD TOURS we occasionally receive enquiries about how to trace the records of British soldiers who served in the 1814-18 Great War. We do our best to help when such a request is made, but our resources are limited and we are conscious that our best is often very slow and not always that conclusive. To help those wishing to research records of British Soldiers who served in the 1914-18 Great War we thought that it would be useful if we put together some notes on the basics of how to research this information.
During the Great War of 1914-1918 Britain’s Regular Army was tiny by European standards and was quickly supplemented initially by Reservists and the Territorials. Kitchener’s Army of volunteers were rapidly trained and sent to the front and by 1916 it was necessary to introduce Conscription to make up numbers.
The casualty lists continued to grow at an alarming rate largely because of the very nature of trench warfare. The modern military innovations and communications that we know today simply did not exist and the 1914-18 Great War had developed into one of attrition. As a consequence, the British Army sustained massive fatal casualties averaging around 450 officers and men per day.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC)
The first place to begin your search is the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). They have the most complete record of soldiers (and others) that died in the 1914-18 Great War. This record is available on-line in their ‘Debt of Honour Register’ at http://www.cwgc.org/.
The information contained in the Debt of Honour Register includes the location of the soldier’s grave (or his commemoration, if he has no known grave). It will usually give details of his service number, rank, unit, date of death (if known) and place of burial or commemoration. Other information may be available, but this is dependent on material supplied (or not supplied) by relatives during and after the war. It should also be noted that whilst the CWGC make every effort the Register is not entirely free of errors.
The 1921 Compilation – Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19
An excellent resource for locating those who died in the war is Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19. Originally published in 1921 the compilations consist of 80 volumes for the soldiers with a separate volume for officers. Each volume deals with individual Regiment or Corps, and lists those who died, giving dates, locations, army number. It is not 100% accurate, but an excellent record that was based on regimental records.
These volumes give information that the CWGC does not for example, place of birth, place of residence, place of enlistment and any former regiment being the most common.
A full set of the Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19 is available for the general public to reference in the Birmingham Central Library. Other Central and/or Reference Libraries may also hold copies, but check before going as they often only have the volume relating to the local regiment.
This work can also be obtained from the Imperial War Museum as a searchable CD-ROM and is also available from the Naval Military Press. The CD-ROM has the advantage that the casualties can be searched and sorted, which is a great benefit if you are researching a unit or what happened to a group of friends. Inevitably it does contain some transcription errors – but then again the originals have errors too. Overall, this is an excellent though very expensive resource. Many branches of the Western Front Association have a copy, as do some libraries – including the one at the National Archives.
Genealogy Websites
Military-Genealogy.com the Naval & Military Press’ website for military historians and family history researchers has computerised these records, along with similar records relating to the Second World War, and offer a pay-per-view service to search them. These works are also available as a searchable CD-ROM, published by the Naval & Military Press.
Another pay-per-view service is provided by findmypast.com that has made it possible to search for soldiers who died in the 1914-18 Great War on-line. It is also possible to access the registers of war deaths via their website. In addition to their pay-per-view service they operate a voucher system whereby vouchers can be purchased from UK stockists or mail order, see their website for details.
Rolls of Honour
Many businesses, organisations, schools and towns created Rolls of Honour after the war. Many of these are now available on-line and can be accessed by searching Google then clicking on the appropriate search result.
In addition to these dedicated Rolls of Honour sites is a particularly good website http://www.roll-of-honour.com/ that is striving to list details of the various War Memorials in the UK. This also has a useful search facility that will interrogate the records they have in their databases.

It is often possible to locate an officer’s file on line, by typing the surname into the National Archives Catalogue accompanied by a record class number. Officers’ files are mostly contained in record series WO 339 or WO 374 (especially Territorial Officers).

Besides a soldier’s (or officer’s) personal file the other major source of information is the Medal Card Index, also in the National Archives. This is the most complete listing of British service personnel in the First World War. The National Archives has now completed the digitizing of the Medal Index.

New archive captures First World War memories


New archive captures First World War memories
An ambitious project shining a spotlight on the lives of fallen First World War Leicestershire soldiers launches this autumn.

The 13,000-record database goes live on the County Council's website in the next few months and means that for the first time ever, people can delve into the personal stories of their soldier ancestors at the click of a mouse.

Compiled by local historian Michael Doyle following 20 years of detailed research, the archive enables surfers to search for individual names.

It paints a picture of each casualty's life by revealing what is known about medals awarded, regiment served in, place of burial, war memorial location and more.

To commemorate later conflicts and prevent names fading into the history books, the County Council is also recording the lives of local men and women killed in World War II and later conflicts.

Over the next 18 months, this information, plus details of the county's memorials, will be added to the comprehensive online archive.

The resource is part of the pioneering Leicestershire and Rutland War Memorials Project - led by the County Council - set up last July to mark the great importance of the tributes and protect them.

David Parsons, Leader of Leicestershire County Council, said: "The First World War records are a key part of an extensive collection, commemorating Leicestershire men and women who fought for their country, and I'd like to thank Michael for his hard work and dedication.

"Nearly every day, residents are helping us add to the archive by sending us information on our war memorial heritage and the lives of our fallen soldiers, and it's crucial we capture these memories before they're lost forever.

"We value greatly the contribution of the Armed Forces, past and present, and the County Council is proud to be leading the way in preserving these records for future generations."

The council is keen to hear from veterans and soldiers, as well as family and friends of Leicestershire casualties involved in World War II and more recent conflicts.

Anyone willing to share their recollections, photos, diaries, maps or medals, should contact the War Memorial Co-ordinator, Elizabeth Blood, on 0116 267 0004 or e-mail: liz.blood@leics.gov.uk .

More details are also available at: www.leics.gov.uk/warmemorials .

Photos/interviews:

To arrange photos or interviews with a volunteer whose ancestors fought and died in the First World War, and is involved in the project, please contact the County Council press office on 0116 305 6274 or email pressoffice@leics.gov.uk .

Notes:

Leicestershire is the first county council to carry out a large-scale war memorial survey and to respond to national calls for their protection, preservation and appreciation.

Over 100 local enthusiasts are involved in the war memorials project, recording, researching and photographing war memorials, and making sure the lives of the people on the memorials are available to local people, family researchers around the world, and school children.

It is thought that several hundred local people died during World War II and 35 Leicestershire people are known to have died in service since.

Welcome to the Irish War Memorials Project

This web-site presents an inventory of war memorials in Ireland. It includes photographs of each memorial, the text of all inscriptions, and details of the site of the memorial. A database of all of those named allows a search for individual persons, with links to the photographs of the memorials.

Many of those named on memorials are included in published lists in books, sometimes with photographs. Where this is known to be the case, the book is named and information about it is provided. In general, the books mentioned are lists of casualties or published rolls of honour. Regimental and military histories are not included. All of the information recorded is to be passed on to the Military History department of the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks, Dublin. Records of memorials in Northern Ireland will also be sent to the U.K. National Inventory of War Memorials at the Imperial War Museum in London.

The main purpose of the site is to make available to family historians the names of those recorded on war memorials. If you find someone of interest to you, please send an e-mail message, to encourage continuation of the project. Higher quality photographs, taking longer to download, can be provided, and it may be possible to answer queries about the memorials themselves.

If you would like to contribute to the inventory, please do so. Go to the "How to contribute" page to find out how to do it.

Sons of the British Empire

Quote:
Welcome to our site
Who Are the Sons of the British Empire?
In April 2010, a group of Living Historians, Pete Knight, John Aston and Chris Barker from the UK and Pete Pickering and Drew Laird from Tasmania met at Zonnebeke, Belgium, for the Memorial Museum Passchendaele's biennial Living History Weekend. The theme for that year's weekend was ANZAC. Pete Pickering and Drew Laird From Tasmania were privileged to be included in the first ANZAC Dawn Service organised by locals at Buttes New British Cemetery (Polygon Wood) Over the course of the weekend we decided to form an organisation dedicated to commemorating the sacrifice by members of all British and Commonwealth nations of the Western Front. The name chosen for our group is 'Sons of the British Empire', which, reflects the feeling of the time, and encompasses both ourselves as Australians, as well as our equally passionate UK colleagues.

Our Aim is to represent our ancestors that served in the Commonwealth Forces. Our primary aim is to perpetuate the proud memory of our ancestors and to remember them with dignity, with honour and most of all with pride.

Wellicht handig als je een CWGC begraafplaats zoekt.
Hier staan ze op continent en land. Let op, het is niet alleen WO1.
