A Memorial to Tauntonian members of the Armed Forces and wartime services, killed in conflicts and peacekeeping operations, from 1914 to the present day. It is a place to pause, remember and reflect…

We have attempted to make the information presented in this Memorial as accurate as possible. If there are any errors or omission, we apologise to any of the families of the people remembered here and will change the relevant information if you contact us.

To assist those seeking further information on the Rolls of Honour, detailed information can be found on the Casualty Information pages (see links below). The information presented should be confirmed by reference to original sources. Differences were encountered in the records used to compile this information, particularly in rank and service unit.

A new web page honouring the 2 OTs who were awarded the Victoria Cross has been created. This remains a work in progress, as further information is sought, and information already found is verified. You can view present content by clicking here on the VC Gallery.
