I am creating a Roll of Honour for the family name ALDERSON for WW1 and WW2. I wish to include all of those who died as a result of these wars – soldiers, seamen (Navy and Mercantile Marine), airmen and civilians. I intend to make the Roll of Honour freely available on the internet.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the London Gazette, and various Canadian and Australian websites, the 1881 and 1901 census returns, and the series of books “Soldiers Died in the Great War” and “Officers Died in the First War” have provided the majority of the information I have collected – about 190 people. I am aware that there may be others who are not mentioned in any of these sources.
I wish to create more than just a list. I wish to identify who they were, their families, how and where they died, and any other details that add to their memory. If you can provide any information, please contact me.
At a later date, I hope to extend the Roll of Honour to other earlier and later conflicts.
If you are wiling to supply information on any Aldersons who should be included, I would be most grateful.
