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 find the location of a name quickly you can look it up on the Roll of Honour on the Veterans UK website or by asking a member of our team at the Arboretum. 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.
