Guernsey Honour Roll

Online Search

A definitive Roll of Honour for the Bailiwick of Guernsey has not yet been found. The largest single list of names appears on the Bailiwick Memorial at the top of Smith Street in St. Peter Port. However, it is far from being a complete record of those who gave their lives.

Entries on our Roll of Honour were originally based on this list, and have been cross checked against:

  • Inscriptions on local memorials and others
  • The Commonwealth War Graves Commission database
  • Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-1919
  • Officers Died in The Great War 1914-1919
  • Australian, Canadian and French archives.
  • Local newspapers and the UK National Archive
  • Military & census records

Additional names and information comes from headstones and memorials in various cemeteries and also from local newspapers, school and parish rolls. Several hundred photographs of graves and memorial inscriptions have been taken in Belgium, France, The Channel Islands and the UK and this work continues. "Men of Sark" by Jane Norwich enables us to add detail to those from that island.

Some names appear on more than one memorial and have been cross referenced.

We have been fairly liberal in our requirements for inclusion.

  • Born in the Bailwick
  • Bailiwick parents (one or both)
  • Residents (English)
  • Residents (French and other nationalities)
  • Service in the RGM including the Permanent Staff
  • Schooling in Guernsey
  • Service in Guernsey while serving with the RGM or other Bailiwick based unit
  • Family records

In short, if there is a reasonable connection with Alderney, Guernsey or Sark, they will be included.

The information found so far is as accurate as we can make it. However, if you have extra information or corrections, we would be pleased to hear from you.

A searchable Excel spreadsheet can be downloaded from here. This is our working file of Bailiwick names and is only available to Group members.

We are grateful for all the information and photographs supplied by others.

If you feel you can provide additional information or corrections, please contact us.
