Originally this database was constructed using the National Inventory of War Memorials (UKNIWM) listing of memorials and the Royal 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.

The conflict may read 'WW1 or WW2' in which case the names have been mixed and the actual conflict needs to be ascertained.

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. 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.

The main source of information is the various war memorials and rolls of honour within post offices or now in museums, or other repositories, with some data recorded from missing memorials.

Note that if the details of whether a persons was a participant in World War 1 or World War 2 are unclear from the memorial/roll of honour then they will show as 'WW1 or Ww2'; where a conflict has been tentatively decided a person can be shown as 'WW1 probably' or 'WW2 probably'
