Other conflicts 28 and 932 Civilians. In total 30,709 are listed in 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.

Showing the real person behind the name

The Cheshire memorial roll is working hard researching the men & women who have served on our behalf, we want to remember that they are not just names but people who had lives before joining the services.

In order to do this we need your help, do you have any pictures or information relating to any of the names we have listed on the site, or maybe you have someone who needs adding.
