15,000 new Irish military records added

We have just added over 15,000 new Irish military records to our ever-growing collection of Irish family history records.

The National Roll of Honour 1914-1921 gives details of Irishmen who died serving in the British Army during the First World War. Also included are those soldiers who died in the three years after the end of the war.

The database of transcripts has been created from all known available references and databases for Irish casualties published before 1922 including books, newspapers, periodicals and existing records. They have also been cross-referenced with the 1901 and 1911 censuses to provide a more precise list of Irish casualties for this period than was previously available to family historians.

Supplementary information included in the transcripts, including newspaper obituaries and often-graphic letters home from the Front Line bring these records to life.

With over 15,000 detailed entries and more to come, the National Roll of Honour 1914-1921 is a rich resource for those with Irish ancestors who served in the Great War and beyond.
