We receive regular enquiries from people searching for service personnel who died after the end of the Second World War. While fatalities from the First and Second World War are well documented by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Debt of Honour database, until now there was no easy way to search for those who had died after 1947.
However, the Roll of Honour for the new Armed Forces memorial is now available to search online. This valuable resource includes the names of everyone who has died while serving in the armed forces since 1 January 1948.
Where available, it can include the following information: date and place of birth; date of death; rank; service number; regiment and place of burial. There is also the option to print out a personal certificate.
