This is the main part of our site, the listing and details of the infantry men of Sheffield who served and died in their thousands. The official Sheffield Council of the day collated a Roll of Honour in book form, this lists just over 5,000 men domiciled or born Sheffield that paid the supreme sacrifice. Our "unofficial roll" will I believe, with the benefit of technology, increase the official figure of Sheffield’s dead to reflect the total sacrifice made.
What you see in the A-Z’s is our basic, raw, database. The names are in the main those 22,000 + names that appear on the Rolls of Honour and Memorials found in Sheffield. These are then ‘wrapped’ around the information found on the CWGC website, the Official Sheffield Council Roll of Honour, and the SDGW CD ROM. Other information such as MIC’s, availability of Service/Pension papers, headstone images and images of the men themselves will eventually be added.
We have some 1,600 headstone images, a few thousand images of the men themselves, plus lots more besides.
Also included are those known Sheffield men that emigrated to the far flung places of the Empire such as Australia and Canada, and served and died with their adopted countries armed forces.
I hope we can do "Tommy Atkins" proud.
