Soldiers Died in the Great War -- Roll of Honour 1914-1919

Royal Irish Rifles - 11th/13th Battalion

The information presented here I have transcribed from "Soldiers Died in the Great War" and have added extra columns to try and give a breakdown of each man's county and country of birth were possible. I have also enhanced the data with information extracted from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC.org). Where a difference in Surname, Forename, Rank or Service number occurred the information from the CWGC has been put in brackets i.e. SDGW (CWGC).

While every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of this transcription, there are errors in both the original text and on CWGC.org. If you have any information regarding any errors here (or indeed any information which may be relevant) I would be glad to hear from you with a view to amending this list.
