The Roll lists servicemen from Gateshead who died in the Great War along with their regiment and service number.

 

Why is my relative not listed on the Roll of Honour?

 

The Roll is not a comprehensive list of everyone who was killed. There are a number of reasons why your relative may not be listed including:

 

  • Family at the time chose not to include their relative
  • Administrative error
  • The person lived outside of the Gateshead boundary (areas of west and east Gateshead such as Blaydon, Felling etc. were not part of Gateshead until 1974)

 

Roll of Honour supplementary list

 

View names not included in the Roll on the Supplementary list.

 

If you would like your relative to be included please complete a Roll of Honour Request form, available to download at the side of this page. You will need to provide evidence that your relative lived in Gateshead and died in the war.

 

The easiest way to do this is to find their Commonwealth War Grave record which you can print as evidence. To do this go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.

 

You can email or post the completed form, along with supplementary evidence, using the contact details below, or hand the form in person to us at the Central Library. Please mark emails and post FAO ’Roll of Honour Requests’.
