"Many of those named on memorials are included in published lists in books, sometimes with photographs. Where this is known to be the case, the book is named and information about it is provided. In general, the books mentioned are lists of casualties or published rolls of honour. Regimental and military histories are not included.

All of the information recorded is to be passed on to the Military History department of the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks, Dublin. Records of memorials in Northern Ireland will also be sent to the U.K. National Inventory of War Memorials at the Imperial War Museum in London.

The main purpose of the site is to make available to family historians the names of those recorded on war memorials. If you find someone of interest to you, please send an e-mail message, to encourage continuation of the project. Higher quality photographs, taking longer to download, can be provided, and it may be possible to answer queries about the memorials themselves."
