Earlier this year we spent some time photographing the Regiment’s First World War Roll of Honour that is held at the Regimental Chapel at St Mary’s Parish Church, Richmond.
We are very pleased to announce that the Roll of Honour is now searchable on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website.
The Roll of Honour records the names of almost 7,500 soldiers. It is a great source of information for anyone researching a Yorkshire Regiment soldier who died during the First World War.
The Roll of Honour does not list every Yorkshire Regiment soldier who was killed during the First World War. There are almost 9,300 men recorded on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website.
The difference in numbers comes about for several reasons;- The Roll of Honour doesn’t include men of the 16th Battalion, many men who were buried on home soil, and men who transferred from the Yorkshire Regiment to another regiment.
We are very grateful to Edward Nicholl for adding this information to his fabulous website.
