Memorial Description

Roll of Honour on pre-printed form 89cm high x 65 cm wide set in a craved wood frame. There is an outer border of a red line inside a black line. At the top is a scroll and Union flag with the words "For King and Country" in black with red capitals. Below this is the date of "1914" followed by "Roll of Honour" in red with black capitals, and Ushaw College" in black with red capitals. Below this is the statement of the holding of mass for as long as the war lasts. This is in copperplate handwriting. At the bottom are the words "God save the King".
The names were originally in six columns followed by Additional Names" and "Casualty Lists". However, so many names have been added that they can be found in all black areas including the margins.
The names of those who fell are marked with a black cross to the left of the name; those were wounded were marked with a red cross.

1. The Curator found the Roll of Honour in an upstairs attic above the former dormitories of the former College.

2. The Roll of Honour was included in a special exhibition some months ago on “Ushaw at War”, which is when the Project Volunteers became aware of its existence during a visit to Ushaw.

3. The inscriptions and lists of names need to be read in conjunction with an examination of the photographs of the artefact, which, due to the number of names, and the partially random way in which they have been included, is a very “crowded” document. Some names clearly have been duplicated, and there is a suggestion that some of those initially listed as wounded later succumbed to their injuries.
