database contains details of British casualties from those who
served in the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939 from Britain. The list
of names and the details included with them have been primarily
extracted from the Bill Alexander book, "British Volunteers
for Liberty Spain, 1936-1939", ISBN 85315 564 X. Additional
information has been drawn from exisiting memorials and newspaper
articles of the time, including The Times. This information has
also been corrolated against the Internal
Brigades website Roll of Honour compiled by Jim Carmody and
Richard Baxell. There may be some differences between their information
and that found here.

extracted from the Bill Alexander book, "British
Volunteers for Liberty Spain, 1936-1939",
ISBN 85315 564 X.
the Roll of Honour contains five hundred and twenty-six
names of volunteers who died in Spain between August
1936 and January 1939, or, in a few cases, who died
of wounds shortly after evacuation. The information
has been collected from the files of the Dependants'
Aid Committee, supplemented and checked with the list
given in Bill Rust's Britons in Spain (1939),
and the very incomplete records sent back by the Republican
Ministry of Defence. The list has been scrutinized by
several volunteers, but there are still gaps in some
details – inevitable in the prevailing conditions of
recruitment, fighting and documentation. The places
given in the centre column are those in the Dependants'
Aid Committee records and represent birthplace, workplace
or place of departure for Spain.
