Boer War - Regimental memorials
Compiled and copyright © 2005 - Sandra Taylor

The memorial commemorates the 1st Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment who lost their lives in the South African (Boer) War. It consists of a gold plaque set into marble and is situated in the North East aisle of Worcester Cathedral, College Green, Worcester. The names are separated into those who were killed in action, those who died of wounds and those who died of disease. These are further separated into rank but for the purpose of this transcription, whilst they have remained in these categories, the names have been placed in alphabetical order.
