Gainsborough WWI Roll of Honour. We have a copy of the Roll of Honour which  was compiled in the early 1980s by Mr R. H. Johnson. This has been expanded to  include servicemen who are remembered on war memorials and who were listed in the Gainsborough News as ‘wounded’ and who subsequently died. The Roll of Honour is in PDF format.

List of Headstones that have WWI inscriptions. This is a list of the 66 headstones which have WWI inscriptions. The list includes the name, age, occupation,  date of death, the memorial or cemetery they are remembered and the inscription from their headstone.
