War Memorials

A searchable online database recording details of the fallen inscribed on war memorials across Berwickshire, Roxburghshire and north Northumberland. This project came about through the research of local historians William J. Murray MA (Edin) and John H. Elliot.

It was also inspired through dialogue with the project manager of the ‘North East War Memorials’ project which covers from Tweed to Tees. It has taken time to upload the details of each fallen hero and any extra detail is being added.

The entries are divided between Boer War, First World War, Second World War and Other Conflicts and the locations of the war memorials in Berwickshire, Roxburghshire and north Northumberland.

William and John hope that any person with additional information would get in touch with them on 01890-882661 and 01890-882176 respectively or through the contact link in this website.
