The official city list of the Peterborough war dead of World War Two is displayed in Peterborough Cathedral, Cambridgeshire, England, and it records in book form the deaths of one hundred and seventy-nine citizens who lost their lives during that war, on land at sea and in the air.
While carrying out my research into these men I have managed to trace another one hundred and nine local people who had been omitted from the original list.
Until recently Peterborough didn’t have a war memorial which recorded the names of the city dead. Most towns and cities raised war memorials after the First World War, and names were added to those already recorded at the end of the Second World War.
After many years and using my own research this has now been remedied with a First World War memorial being placed next to the Second World War book of remembrance in Peterborough Cathedral.
I am proud to be able to record the names of these forgotten souls on what is now, the first ever, complete Peterborough Roll of Honour.
The First World War Roll of Honour can be found elsewhere on this site.
Special thanks to Steven Turner for providing the cemetery and grave photographs on the Army pages.
