Maintaining the Roll of Honour

The SPVA website holds information on the National Memorial and Roll of Honour

The SPVA website holds information about the Armed Forces Memorial and also houses the Roll of Honour search facility.

Inclusion on the Armed Forces Memorial  and the Roll of Honour is determined by the Armed Forces Memorial Trustees Inclusion criteria.

The Roll of Honour search facility potentially allows you to search for a person who died while they were in Service.  The Roll of Honour contains details of those who died since 01/01/1948 whose circumstances of death meet the AFM Trustees Inclusion criteria. It's normally updated monthly and currently provides information for those who died more than two years ago.

Partial Roll of Honour records: Forename, Surname and Military Decorations are also potentially available for those who died from 01/01/09 to 31/01/09.

Partial Roll of Honour records are normally reviewed 2 years after the date of death, when more information may become available.

The Roll of Honour is straightforward to use, requiring either the surname and forenames, or initials (if known), or the Service number.  When you have found the person you are looking for, there is an option to print an AFM Certificate
