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
Soldiers Died in the Great
Officers Died in The Great
Australian, Canadian and
- Local newspapers and the UK National Archive
- Military & census records
Additional names and information comes from 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
Some names appear on more than one memorial
and have been cross referenced.
We have been fairly liberal in our requirements
- Born in the Bailwick
- Bailiwick parents (one or both)
- Residents (English)
- Residents (French and other nationalities)
- Service in the RGM including the Permanent
- 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.
