Entries are taken from the 'Soldiers Died in the Great War' CD and then the information supplemented with information from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Additional information has then been drawn from other reference documents, for example, National Roll of the Great War and de Ruvigny's Roll 0f Honour.
