A Roll of Honour of WW1 servicemen

From the parishes of Bottesford and Muston, Leicestershire.


The investigation carried out by the Bottesford and Muston WW1 Centenary Project has assembled a Roll of Honour of WW1 servicemen. This includes men who were Killed in Action or who Died of Wounds during the fighting, and also the men who lived to see the end of the fighting. There is also a table listing men who had family links to Bottesford and who died in active service but were not included on the village War Memorial.

They are given here in a series of tables, as follows:

Table (1) – Bottesford casualties named on the village War Memorial

Table (2) – Additional WW1 servicemen with family links to Bottesford who died in active service.

Table (3) – Bottesford servicemen who survived military service in WW1,

Table (4) – Muston casualties named on the village War Memorial.

Table (5) – Muston servicemen who survived military service in WW1.

Please add a comment to point out mistakes and inaccuracies or the names of additional men who should have been included but have been overlooked.
