On the 100th anniversary of each casualty, throughout 2014-19 an updated blog post has been added marking the centenary of their death – these can be found month by month on the right of this page on the Monthly Archive menu.

The Devoran Roll of Honour lists all the Devoran parish men who served  including the above casualties. These names have been transcribed  from the scroll in the Village Hall. A missing lost draft panel from 1914 to 1916/17 was found wedged in the back of the Roll of Honour during paper conservation.

The Devoran WW1 and WW2 names are in the process of being listed on Martin Edwards’ Roll of Honour website of UK war memorial listings.
