Huddersfield’s Roll of Honour 1914-1922 is a detailed account of 3,439  service personnel from Huddersfield who lost their lives during the First World War. In the Preface,  HRH The Duke of York KG writes:

“This publication represents the lifetime work of Margaret Stansfield who sadly passed away in 2012. Margaret spent 30 years compiling the 3,439 biographical entries giving a poignant insight into the background, working lives and families of those who selflessly left Huddersfield to fight for their country never to return.”

Along with the biographical accounts there are many moving letters to the families of soldiers who lost their lives reflecting an attempt to bring comfort amid the darkness that their loss brought to both families and comrades alike.
