Note: This database is currently in the process of being updated. Data may appear to be in the wrong fields or incorrect while this process takes place but is normally correct. Some entries are duplicated or triplicated and these are gradually being merged. Where links exist there may be more information on the page linked to than on the database.

Often two addresses can be found for one person, where possible both have been included to show movement, the sequence may not always be correct. In the case of those serving at sea there can be an apparent overlap of dates, normally a man enlisted for 12 years, or the duration of hostilities; the 12 years is sually made up of 5 years service and 7 years service in the Reserves, it is the latter 7 years when these men worked for the railways. The details here have been drawn from a variety of sources which are noted and quite often the information within the various sources conflicts. The data here is as found and reflects any conflicts.

The main sources of information are St Paul's Cathedral Order of Service 1919, various railway magazines of the time, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and various railway war memorials.
