Auchencairn Roll of Honour

Memorial face with names inscribed

The men commemorated on Auchencairn War Memorial

The names of eighteen men who died in the Great War are inscribed into one of the granite faces of the village war memorial. Although my research has uncovered a substantial amount of information, the task of unearthing background information on, or photographs of, particular individuals has proved quite difficult. Please browse the information below and check whether any of these men are part of your family history:

How you can help

The men commemorated on the village war memorial are the main focus of this project; their involvement in the Great War has been researched more thoroughly than any of the others listed within these pages. In the main, a reasonable account can be given of their war service, but less is known of their personal/family lives. Details that are known have mostly been gleaned from official documents (birth, marriage and death certificates, and census) or newspaper reports. Any personal/family information or photographs will enable me to present a fuller picture of these men and their lives. Please read through the pages and if you think you can help get in touch via the contact form.
