WWI Roll of Honour





The Roll of Honour for the Borough of Darwen in the Great War was researched and written by Tony Foster, Chairman of the Darwen Heritage Centre.  This was completed in time for the Centenary of the end of the war which formed a major exhibition at the Heritage Centre.  One of the lasting memories of the exhibition was the care and effort shown by so many people in creating crocheted and knitted poppies – one for each of the fallen men and women of the Borough.  Whilst every care has been taken to include the names of all of those who should be commemorated on this Roll, if you think that you have a relative who has been missed out, please contact the Darwen Heritage Centre.

The Roll of Honour was first placed on the Cotton Town website as the Darwen Heritage Centre website had not been constructed at that time, and can be seen by following the link below.  Alternatively, a printed copy can be seen in the foyer of the Darwen Town Hall where visitors can look through the pages.
