WW1 Lives Lost

Blantyre Events

Stories and tales of Bravery from World War I. Lest we Forget.

Menu: WW1 | Conflicts | Lives Lost | Blantyre War Efforts | Heroes | Remembrance

There are 297 names remembered on the WW1 plaque on Blantyre War Memorial at High Blantyre Cemetery. A further 9 names have been added inscribed into the stonework below the plaque. As such the War Memorial remembers 306 Blantyre people who died in that conflict. I’ve transcribed them all below in the hope of telling their unique stories.  However, I’m convinced MORE people died and have set out a task to have them remembered too.
