Roll of Honour

The Guild Secretary at Strathmore Road, Rowlands Gill, in County Durham, was able to transcribe information from the Roll of Honour which still hangs on the wall of the chapel. A description and photographs can be seen here

She neglected, however, to note which men (and woman in this case) had died, and having run out of space forgot one name. In this transcription I have restored that information. Four men and one woman died during the war.
