Cenotaphs and War Memorial Plaques in Churches and other buildings throughout the Ards area bear lists of names of servicemen who lost their lives in the Great War. In the course of research for this book some additional names have been found. On their own, the names provide a poignant reminder of the large number of men who died. By adding details about their lives, this Book of Honour remembers their personal sacrifice and the impact on their families. In the book there is a great deal more information about some than others and the intention is to add detail where it is currently lacking. Readers are invited to suggest further names and/or provide additional information via the interactive website Such information will be considered for inclusion on the website and in any future edition of this book – in accordance with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) assertion that all casualties should be honoured equally ‘without distinction on account of rank, race or creed’.

In CWGC cemeteries the Cross of Sacrifice designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield comprises a cross ‘representing the faith of the majority’ and a sword ‘representing the military nature of the cemetery’.
