Great War Centenary
Large numbers of bellringers from the British Isles and its Empire served in the First World War in His Majesty’s Forces on sea, land and in the air, at home and abroad, some never to return.
At present there are 1,360 bell-ringers from 71 Societies listed who gave their lives in the service of their King and Country during the Great War. All of these names are commemorated in the two volumes of The Central Council Memorial Book of Church Bell-Ringers Who Fell in the Great War 1914-1918. These can be viewed in a display case on the way up to the Ringing Chamber at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. Images of the pages of the CC Roll of Honour are available to view online.
Alan Regin, the current Steward of the Rolls of Honour for the CCCBR, and Alan Baldock, Stella Bianco, David Kirkcaldy, Margaret Oram, and Richard Verrall from the SCACR, have updated the original SCACR Roll of Honour. They are owed a vote of thanks for the work they have done to ensure that the names of all the ringers those who died serving their country during WW1 are recorded.
