War Memorials & Roll of Honours
Swindon, Wiltshire



Photographs below are of some of the War Memorials and Roll of Honours that are to be found in Swindon.  If you know where any more are that we have not photographed, please let us know.

Under each photograph is a link to a Transcription of the memorial.  Should you wish to print it click the 'Printable version' link - it has the same text but with extraneous details removed.  Another link to 'How to print this page' gives a few tips about printing it.

We apologise that some of our photographs are blurred and not easily readable and the names we have recorded may therefore be incorrect (especially initials).  If you notice any mistakes please let us know so we can correct them.

Please Note:  the Namesearch entries for this page only takes you to the Transcription of the memorial.  If you want to see the photograph, there is a link to it from the transcription page.
