The Names

The names of those who have died are recorded in date and Service order, grouped together with colleagues who died in the same incident. Naming starts on the left wall as you enter the Memorial from the steps.

To quickly learn if a person is included on the Armed Forces Memorial use the Roll of Honour on the Veterans UK website or ask a member of our team while visiting. Every effort will be made by our team to assist you in finding the name you are looking for. 

Over 15,000 names were carved by computer when the Memorial was created, with space on the empty panels for an additional 15,000. Since then, the names of those killed since 2007 have been engraved by hand on the Memorial on an a yearly basis.
