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 estate staff at Christ’s Hospital in addition to Old Blues who died. In all 445 names appear.

We have used 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 service, may have died from illness or accidents.  There are some civilians included who were killed by 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, in the case of Old Blues, contains details of their  service, rank, unit, dates at CH, ward (pre 1902) and/or house, place of death, age at death, relevant cemetery or memorial and location in or on it, medals or awards and, in some cases, further biographical details and photographs.  Over time we expect to increase the amount of biographical information provided.
