War Memorials are something all of us pass every day but how much notice do we take of them and do we think of the people behind the names inscribed thereon. Some memorials have already been damaged or forgotten.
By assembling this collection of roughly 740 Norfolk Parishes, I hope that generations to come will have some reference to those who gave their tomorrows for our today, and that they may not be forgotten in the future.
Many memorials bear just initials and a surname, this alone is not enough to identify the man or woman and their identity can soon be lost and forgotten.
Within this file are some details behind the name, his or her family where known so their sacrifice and identity shall not be forgotten.
Some additional information may be available from LinkExternal link

"Sons of this place let this of you be said,
That you who live are worthy of your dead,
These gave their lives that you who live may reap,
A richer harvest ere you fall asleep."

Remembrance is not just two minutes silence every November 11th

Please note that in general, the names on a Roll of Honour are those who fought and returned home safely.
However in some cases the names are of those who never returned or occasionally the names are combined at one source and the fallen marked with a cross or otherwise indicated.

The mistakes for which I am responsible can be rectified by emailing me at the link above and telling me about them.
