Rolls of Honour

The Central Council Rolls of Honour commemorate those ringers who fell in the Great War 1914 – 1918 and 1939-1945 War.

The Council commissioned a handwritten Memorial Book for each War. These books can be viewed in a display case on the way up to the ringing chamber at St Paul’s Cathedral, London.

This website contains photographic copies of the pages of each Book, together with a listing of the text. Each entry shows the ringer’s name, initials, home tower and society where known.

In recent years much more information has become accessible on the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and additional names have been obtained from ringing societies and individual ringers. Alan Regin, the current Steward of the Rolls of Honour, has collected and organised this material to provide updated and more complete lists of casualties. This additional information includes age, date of death, rank, regiment and cemetery/memorial where known. Alan’s growing collection of photographs of headstones and memorials is also gradually being added.
