Book of Remembrance




Roll of Honour






The Welsh Book of Remembrance is a beautifully decorated volume containing the names of around 35,000 men and women of Welsh birth and parentage and also those who served with Welsh Regiments who lost their lives during the First World War. The volume measures approximately 32 x 48 x 15cm and contains just over 1000 pages, each page displaying around 40 names written by professional scribes in neat calligraphy. The Book is held in the Crypt at the Temple of Peace in Cardiff. To reflect the fact that most of the men and women named in the Book died in Belgium or France the glass casing is French and the marble pedestal is Belgian. The Book is being digitised and transcribed as part of the Wales for Peace project, led by the Welsh Centre for International Affairs, and in collaboration with the National Library of Wales (2015-16).
