Dorset In The Great War 1914 - 1918


This site is dedicated to the memory of the men and women of Dorset, who fought and served during the Great War 1914 - 1918.

We aim to commemorate and add details about the Men and Women listed on War Memorials across the county, as well those who came from Dorset. You can also find information covering the Dorsetshire Regiment and the Queen's Own Dorset Yeomanry in the Great War too.

If you have any information you would like to add about Dorset in the Great War, or those listed on the War Memorials then please feel free to contact us via the contact page here.

All work on this site has been researched and compiled by myself.

The site is currently a work in progress and we hope to add continually updates with more information, so please check back regularly.

If you have found the site helpful and would like to support the project, we welcome all donations to help keep the site running through the Donate button below. All proceeds will go back into the running costs of the site, and adding further content in the future.
