this database was constructed using the National
Inventory of War Memorials (UKNIWM) listing of memorials and
Mail Group Memorial Database; where details exist for the
same memorial in eah location then the Royal Mail Database has
been used.Various post office memorials exist on the Roll of Honour
web site and these were then merged into the database. Various
other memorials were selected from the Internet and transcribed
for use here. The men held here are both those who died and those
who served and returned. The data comes from Memorials to the
Dead and Rolls of Honour. There is some duplication of names and
these will be merged at a later date. Some names are missing as
some memorials were not fully transcribed.
conflict may read 'WW1 or WW2' in which case the names have been
mixed and the actual conflict needs to be ascertained.
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. There are some names that
appear on more than one memorial. Where links exist there may
be more information on the page linked to than on the database.
We are always adding to the database. If you have information
about a missing memorial to postal workers then please let us
have the details.
