The website contains the names of well over 9,100 soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment.
Where the named soldiers were killed or died of wounds in
the First World War, we have tried to show photographs of the memorials
on which they are commemorated or the graves in which they are buried. These
memorials or commemorations are shown against the soldier's name.
If you know the name of a soldier in the Yorkshire Regiment who lost his life in the First World War, the first step is to check the on-line database of names.
Look for a Name
The on-line database for this website has the following information for the majority of the 9,100+ soldiers in the database;-
1 Name, Rank, and Number of Soldier
2 Memorial(s), Cemetery, or page(s) on the website where information is held
To use the database, simply enter the initial (or *) and name
(or part name) of the soldier.
The database will then show you the memorial(s) or cemetery associated with the name, and each memorial or cemetery is directly linked to the relevant page where further details may be found.
Quite a number of photographs of soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment, - both those who served and those who fell, can be found on the website (all of these soldiers are listed on the above searchable database).
What to Do If the Soldier ISN'T Shown on the Website's Database
If you don't find the name of the soldier you are looking for in the above database, it may simply mean that we haven't managed to obtain photographs of a memorial or cemetery for that soldier. In which case, there are still several other pages on the website which contain information on soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment. The page to start from is the Lists of Names.
Included on this page is;-
1 The regiment's Officers, - biographical data on
2 Officers where there is no photo available of a memorial or cemetery, - data from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database (CWGC) and Soldiers Died in the Great War (SDGW).
3 Soldiers where there is no photo available of a memorial or cemetery, - data from the CWGC and SDGW.
4 The 2nd Battalion's 1914 Roll of Honour.
5 The regiment's Victoria Cross Winners.
6 Yorkshire Regiment soldiers Shot at Dawn.
