THOSE from the district who lost their lives during the First World War have been included on a Roll of Honour.

It has been printed as a book and is also available an electronic publication through the district council’s dedicated Great War website – www.stratford.gov.uk/ww1.

The Roll of Honour, featuring 1,600 names, was presented at a service of remembrance to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the conflict at the district council’s Stratford offices on Thursday November 8.

District council chairman Councillor Christopher Kettle, who hosted the service, said: “During the research about our district and as part of the planning for our own commemorations, it became clear that whilst most parishes have a record of their losses, there is no complete record of the number or names of those who died across the district of Stratford-on-Avon.




“This Roll of Honour seeks to put that record straight.”
