The website contains the names of well over 9,100 soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment.
Where the named soldiers were killed or died of wounds in
the First World War, we have tried to show photographs of the memorials
on which they are commemorated or the graves in which they are buried. These
memorials or commemorations are shown against the soldier's name.
If you know the name of a soldier in the Yorkshire Regiment who lost his life in the First World War, the first step is to check the on-line database of names.
Look for a Name
The on-line database for this website has the following information for the majority of the 9,300+ soldiers in the database;-
1 Name, Rank, and Number of Soldier
2 Memorial(s), Cemetery, or page(s) on the website where information is held
To use the database, simply enter the initial (or *) and name
(or part name) of the soldier.
The database will then show you the memorial(s) or cemetery associated with the name, and each memorial or cemetery is directly linked to the relevant page where further details may be found.
Quite a number of photographs of soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment, - both those who served and those who fell, can be found on the website (all of these soldiers are listed on the above searchable database).
Names and Other Information on the Website
The website provides a wealth of information on soldiers who lost their lives serving with the Yorkshire Regiment, as well as soldiers who served and survived.
As well as providing data on the memorials on which the soldiers are commemorated, and the cemeteries in which they are buried (with photographs of the commmeorations and headstones), there is plenty of other information. This includes;-
1 Data on Officers as obtained from "Soldiers Died in
the Great War".

5 Yorkshire Regiment soldiers "Shot at Dawn."
6 Men of Skelton, Cleveland, who served in the Yorkshire Regiment.
7 Information on soldiers where no photographs of their commmeorations currently exist.
