The 17-volume ‘First World War Roll of Honour’ is a commemorative series of books to remember all the military and civilian casualties of the UK, Commonwealth and former Empire nations who lost their lives during the First World War for the respective time period covered by each volume. Each entry lists, where known and recorded, the name, rank, service number, date of death and unit (or for civilian casualties, name, date of death, cause of death and age). The books are set out by Nation of Service, Military Branch then by Regiment. In some instances only initials are given for first names where full names were not known/recorded in the original sources. Officers were not issued service numbers. The Battle of the Somme had been raging for a full month by August 1916, with casualties numbering in the hundreds of thousands on both sides. It was evident that this diversionary Offensive would turn into another drawn out, costly battle of attrition. This sixth book in the First World War Roll of Honour series covers the casualties attributable directly to the War (including those killed in action, died of wounds, illness or other means) for all nations of the British Empire and Commonwealth during August to September 1916. It also lists members of the Merchant Navy and the known civilian casualties caused as a direct result of enemy action that are not commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. In total, 61,968 names are included in this volume of the First World War Roll of Honour.
