FAQs



I am having difficulty tracing a casualty

In general, with so many variables for each individual, less information entered into the search panels tends to give more results, among which we would hope you will find the person for whom you are searching. Also, try alternative spellings of the name - so for Eatley, try Eatly.

The Heritage department team have tried to ensure that the Book of Remembrance is as complete as possible, but there is the strong likelihood that we have failed to trace some individuals. If you are aware of someone who died as a result of war operations and was born or lived in the borough then please contact us. We would be most interested to add your information to the site



I believe that a casualty’s details are wrong

Every effort has been made to ensure that the records on this site are as accurate as possible.

If you believe that you have more precise information or if you have additional information you believe would be of interest to us, please contact us.



I wish to leave a tribute on-line

Please access the ‘Leave a tribute’ facility from the page giving the details about an individual person. Your message will be uploaded to the website by a member of the Local History Centre staff.

I wish to visit a grave

The information contained in the record for each casualty should give details of the cemetery, plot and grave number or, for those servicemen who are missing on land and at sea, the memorial on which their names are inscribed.

For the physical location of each grave, please contact direct the cemetery in question. Please note that if you intend to leave a floral tribute then a non-permanent example is preferred.

If you are unable to visit a grave or memorial yourself, it is possible to arrange for an organisation to do this on your behalf.
