This database contains the Roll of Honour – a listing of British Army casualties from World War II. The original data comes from the National Archives records series WO 304, War Office: Roll of Honour, Second World War. This Roll was compiled from various War Office records between 1944 and 1949. Originally the data was encoded onto cards using a Hollerith Machine (a unit record machine), the original print outs of which are kept at the National Archives.
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.
