New Roll of Honour for Footballers Who Died in World War One

Posted by SoccerHistory
WW1 Roll of Honour

Today we are pleased to launch our new Roll of Honour for footballers who died in World War One. The list currently covers Full and Amateur internationals and players who appeared in either the Football League or Southern League.

Researched solely from primary sources, principally contemporary newspapers and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, the list includes over 170 men, many of whom have previously not been traced by historians.

This builds on our previous list which appeared in the booklet World War 1 Footballing Heroes, 1914-1918 and remains a work in progress. We have many more names we have yet to verify and later we will add the names of Scottish League players who died. If you have any further names to add to this list please contact us with appropriate evidence through the contacts section of this site.
