Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-1919

In 1921 His Majesty's Stationery Office published, on behalf of and by authority of the War Office, two lists of those who died during the Great War. One volume, packed with minute typescript, gave the basic details of nearly 42,000 officer casualties. It required an additional eighty volumes to list all the 'other ranks' who gave their lives. Each of the original volumes represented one or more regiments, corps or other units of the British Army. Most were subdivided into battalions or similar groupings. There were often thirty or more of these per volume, each in alphabetical order.

Records in this collection are likely to include the following:

  • Name
  • Birthplace
  • Enlistment place
  • Town of Residence
  • Regimental Number
  • gallantry awards
  • rank
  • Regiment
  • Battalion
  • Type of casualty
  • Death date
  • place and theatre of war.

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.
