This database was compiled by Martin Edwards. For further details of the Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire Regiment see the Regiments section.

Initially the entries are taken from the 'Army Roll of Honour 1939-45' CD and then the information supplemented with information from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Additional information has then been drawn from other reference documents.

Links are provided to the war memorials that exist on-line for these men wherever pertinent and any photographs also linked. Hopefully this will provide a comprehensive set of information.
