Presbyterian Church In Ireland -- Roll of Honour 1914-1919

Extract for the Congregation of Cregagh Presbyterian Church, Belfast

The entries in the Roll of Honour have been compared with the names recorded on the Memorials installed in the church. For the Belfast congregations I am indebted to Nigel Henderson who has been researching the men of the Belfast Presbytery. I have added those names not recorded in the Roll and noted any differences etc. I found either as a footnote or in brackets. For those fallen, where possible, I have also added a link to the relevant entry on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website (CWGC.org) and/or Soldiers Died in the Great War I have transcribed.
