About the memorial: WW1 Roll of Honour, compiled in 1994, comprising ribbon-bound typed sheets listing 1079 names. It is currently stored within a wooden casket, whose glazed outer panel contains a dedicatory inscription that states the Roll of Honour lists 1047 names. (The reason for the discrepancy re the number of names is that the casket was custom-made in 1928 to contain the City's original Roll of Honour that was compiled in 1921, which listed 1047 names; the inscription in the glazed panel is therefore part of that original Roll of Honour, to which our record WMO.290616 relates). N.B. The 1994 version of the Roll of Honour is known to include some anomalies, e.g. inaccurate dates/places of death etc; some dual entries (i.e. men recorded on it under their true surname and also under the alias as which they enlisted, or men recorded on one of the Roll's appendices as well as in its main section); the Roll also includes the names of some men who in fact survived their war service. Access to the Roll is possible by making an appointment with the Hospital's Company Secretary. Originally in the boardroom of the Peterborough District Hospital (Memorial Wing) on Midland Road. In 2010, following the closure of the Hospital in Thorpe Road/Midland Road, the casket containing the revised Roll of Honour was removed to temporary storage in the Nurses' Home, for safekeeping; it was subsequently transferred to its current location, i.e. the Peterborough City Hospital at Bretton Gate.
