Transcribed and Researched by Linda Hutton


Description:
A pre-printed paper Roll of Honour (RoH) with 100 handwritten names added in the centre panel in three columns rough alphabetical order.  In a frame and covered with glass.
Photographed in artificial light, some reflections inevitable. Some water damage at bottom left and a split across the whole width about two thirds down. A small triangular flake is missing over one name in the L section. The edges are damaged, where pieces have flaked away and the whole is darkened with age. The final name in the third column is written in pencil rather than ink.


The document was discovered in the Parish papers by a previous Parish Clerk and has been recorded and conserved by Clifton Museum, Rotherham. 

It is a list of 100 men who served, including 22 men who fell.

See also the  Cortonwood Wesleyan Methodist Roll of Honour (external site) which lists 21 names of men who fell which are nearly all on this RoH. Three additional men are named on the Methodist RoH who are not on this RoH.  Four men on the Brampton RoH who fell are not on the Methodist RoH.

About 56 of the names on this RoH appear on the Cortonwood War Memorial, others are listed on various memorials in Wath upon Dearne and Wombwell.

Inscription:
*in scroll at top of the sheet* Honour Where Honour Is Due
*main title* Our Roll of Honour in the Great War

Names:
 
Where further information has been discovered for any of these men it will be linked (look for names underlined and in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.  In this way we try to avoid duplication and encroaching on the research of other groups and individuals.
