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

Extract for the Congregation of Portaferry

I have compared the entries in the Roll of Honour with the names recorded on the Memorial installed in the church. 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 (CWGC) website, Soldiers Died in the Great War (SDGW) which I have transcribed or Lives of the First World War (LOTFWW).
