First World War Roll of Honour

This Roll of Honour is compiled from contemporary records and subsequent research which has led to the discovery of several names who do not appear on our Dining Hall War Memorial.  You will see listed the names of Governors and members of the teaching and administrative staff at Christ’s Hospital in addition to Old Blues who died. In all 448 names appear.

We have used broadly the same criteria for admission to our Roll of Honour as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission so you will see individuals who were not killed in action or died of wounds but, while still in uniform, may have died from illness or accidents.  There are some names included who were killed by, or as a result of, enemy action.

To search for a particular name, the quickest way will be to use the Search function and enter the surname.  

For each individual there is a page which contains details of service, rank, unit, place of death, age at death, relevant cemetery or memorial and location in or on it, medals or awards, and for the 425 Old Blues, further biographical details are available, including their time at the school, and photographs.  Over time we expect to increase the amount of biographical information provided.
