Note: The Luton Roll of Honour gives military detail, martital status and an address that is noted as residence but is probably the address of the person notifying them. Addresses differ from that given on the Luton RoH, CWGC and census records. Names can vary between records and thus there may be conflicting entries by a name. Spellings differ between records. All this we have tried to indicate here.
