Roll of Honour

The Guild Secretary at Musgrave Street appears to have listed the fifty-six men from the chapel who served during the war.

In the following list the names of those known to have been baptised in the chapel are in bold; further details are given of the four men certain to have died; and a note is made of possible other deaths.
