Isle of Wight War Memorials Index
|Click here to search the War Memorials Index|
The index has been derived from, and is maintained in conjunction with, the website entries of Memorials and Monuments on the Isle of Wight which is the work of our Webmaster, Geoff Allan.
Isle of Wight Great War Roll of Honour IndexThis index also contains the names listed by the Isle of Wight County Press in their contemporary reporting of the Great War. From September 1914, the newspaper printed lists of men and women who were in the armed forces, or who had recently enlisted. By 24 Oct 1914, some 2,721 men and women had been named, and these lists grew as the war progressed. The newspaper reported weekly on the progress of the War and 'The Island and the War' column gave plentiful details of the experiences of the men at the Front, as well as recording the Casualties incurred.
As we progress through the Centenary years of the Great War, I shall be adding information to this index to augment the information already recorded for War Memorials and Rolls of Honour which were created at the end of the war.
