Compiled by the War Office and originally published in 1921. The series comprises 80 separate parts, of which The Border Regiment is part 39.

On behalf of and by authority of the War Office, His Majesty's Stationary Office published in 1921 two lists of those who died during the Great War. One volume gave the basic details of almost 42,000 officer casualties. Another eighty volumes were needed to list all the 'other ranks' who gave their lives during the Great War, a war that claimed a daily average of over 450 British Army fatalities.

Each of the original volumes represented one or more regiments, or other units of the British Army. Most were subdivided into battalions or similar groupings. There were often thirty or more of these per volume, each in alphabetical order. In part 39, The Border Regiment, the Lonsdales (11th Battalion) are represented on pages 66-75.

From the preface

"These rolls have been compiled from information furnished to Officers-in-Charge of Records through the Official Casualty Lists. They are published to enable information, which has from time to time been circulated during the war, to be available in volume form. Attention is invited to the explanations of abbreviations which are printed at the commencement of each part." – The War Office, 1921.
