This collection comprises of civilians who received honours during the Second World War. Whilst details of the service which earned the reward were not recorded, in many cases the position they held, or the job they had are included, which can indicate what the award was for. The specific military decoration they received is also given. The record contains most of the information from the person's entry in the London Gazette.
Please be aware that due to the way we collate, and cross reference our databases, some records will contain more information than that listed above.
