The Cheshire Roll Of Honour

More Than a Name 

 

The Cheshire Roll Of Honour was originally started to remember all those who lost their lives in the Great War of 1914-1918 who came from the county of Cheshire England. The roll was extended to also remember the men and women who lost their lives in the 1939-1945 world war (WW2). It was decided that along with remembering the ones who never came back, it should also contain those who did. The Cheshire Roll Of Honour NOW also includes the Boer war and all conflicts since 1945.

You can not only read a soldiers profile but also locate where they are buried or commemorated around the world. By putting their stories together and whenever possible a face to a name, keeps the memory of those who gave all, so we could live in freedom today and in the minds of the future generations.

No other county has a Roll of Honour such as this as it covers all conflicts from the Boer War to the present day. 

  • 22,633 People listed under WW1
  • 7,154 From WW2
  • 14 From the Boer War
  • Other conflicts 28
  • 932 Civilians
  • In total 30,761 are listed in The Cheshire Roll Of Honour
