WATERLOO STATION
- LONDON & SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY-
ROLL OF HONOUR

Compiled and Copyright © Martin Edwards - 2003

Within the confines of Waterloo Station are four large rolls of honour, each taking up a wall. These contain the names of the men who died during World War 1 who worked for the London and South Western Railway Company. In all there are ten columns of names. Details here are taken from these rolls of honour and from the St Paul's Cathedral Service In Memory of Railwaymen who died in service of their Country 1914-1918. In all there are 527 names here and as they have come from various towns along the railway it is extremely hard to research the names as there is no baseline of information to draw from.

The L&SWR began as a railway to link Southampton and London, but in due course it expanded much further into the West of England until it reached as far afield as Exeter, Plymouth, Ilfracombe, Bude and Padstow. In the course of this expansion it acquired or leased many other smaller railway companies. To see details of the stations and branch lines covered see the RailWest web site.
