The Watford Roll of Honour
The Watford Borough Roll of Honour is a hand written book thought to be designed by the Watford School of Art to remember the 830 service men who fought and died during the First World War.
This webpage includes a searchable database of service men featured in the Borough Roll of Honour with biographies and their memorials. The bigoraphies will go online at roughly the time they died during and after the War. There are over 500 other Watford service men who do not feature in the Borough Roll of Honour who will also be included in the database.
Watford and the Great War
In August and September each year Watford Museum will be holding an exhibition alongside the website featuring the key commemoration events of that year. The next exhibition will show the impact on Watford in 1916 and include the loan of the Western Front Violin from the Imperial War Museum.
