The Lonsdale Battalion Roll of Honour contains almost 850 other ranks and has been compiled using HMSO's Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19, Volume 39, The Border Regiment and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. This was done primarily to ensure that the Roll was as accurate as possible and secondly, to make general comparisons between the two sources and route out the differences between them. There are instances where there is conflicting information: one source may say a soldier died of wounds and another would show he was killed in action. Discrepancies were not overly commonplace but there are a few, including some "strays" and various typos and misspelt names and places. It should also be noted that some words have not been misspelt, instead favouring the archaic spelling of words that were contemporary with the war. Any other errors and omissions are down to the compiling of this Roll of Honour. Many of the soldiers that served in the Lonsdale Battalion also served in other battalions of the Border Regiment, some also transferred from or to entirely different regiments. The most common of these are the Herefordshire, Essex and Liverpool Regiments, which saw substantial numbers joining the Lonsdale Battalion during the recruitment drives. See notes and definitions for information about what we have used in the rolls.
