Search Leicestershire Regiment Men Who Died in World War 1 and 2

This database contains details of the men who served in the Leicestershire Regiment and died during the First and Second World Wars. The database was originally provided by BBC Radio Leicester and is in the process of being expanded and updated. At presnet this database although complete from the point of view of the men who died is not complete in the data that is intended to be held. Links to any war memorials in the United Kingdom that these men are known to exist on are also provided plus photographs of either the men of their graves. Currently the database is not fully functional.

Database contains 8,613 records - 28 June, 2007
WW1 - 7,269 / WW2 - 1,343

Serial No:
Cemetery or Memorial:

This database was compiled by BBC Radio Leicester under their About Leicester section of the web site. The data has since been expanded and will be gradually added to in the future. Searches by name are not fully functional as the database was original built with initials only.

Entries have been supplemented with information from the 'Soldiers Died in the Great War' CD and 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 of Honour.

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.
