Morayshire "B" Roll of Honour
Some Rolls of Honour were published early in the war.

The former Morayshire County Council and Town Councils of Morayshire issued The Morayshire Roll of Honour in 1921.

This is a large volume which provides a biographical record of the men and women connected with the county who took part in the Great War. It is a tremendous source of information for any researcher.

The Roll of Honour was compiled with the assistance of the Morayshire Constabulary who arranged for officers and special constables to deliver forms to every household in the county and then to collect them once completed.

The Roll of Honour provides details of more than 7,500 men and women. It runs to over 540 pages. It is available online at https://archive.org/details/morayshirerollof1921mora

While the Morayshire Roll of Honour is the most comprehensive Roll found in Moray, there are other Rolls of Honour that have been compiled. Some of these were published early in the war and provide names and regiments of those serving at that time, along with names of those killed. Work is continuing to research these and to include any further Rolls of Honour which may come to light as a result of this project on this website. Rolls of Honour known to date are listed below and links will be activated to further detail of these during the course of the Moray’s War project.

A particular mystery surrounds the Morayshire 'B'’ Roll of Honour. This was found in a loft some years ago and has now been framed but as yet, there is no definitive further information about its provenance.
