The details used to create this database are from an original work by William Owen, Chairman of Kempston Urban District council 1919. He meticulously recorded each man in a book street by street. The book itself is in copperplate writing and is entitled 'The List of the Names of Kempston Men who served in His Majesty's forces during The Great War From 4th August 1914 to 11th November 1918.' The details recorded here are based on this information but have been expanded with further details and some corrections. The photographs Copyright © Roll of Honour 2001, 2002, 2003.

The original entries have been added to using supplemental information from the 'Soldiers Died in the Great War' CD and information from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Additional information has then been drawn from other reference documents, for example, National Roll of the Great War and de Ruvigny's.

Links are provided to the war memorials that exist on-line for these men wherever pertinent and any photographs also linked. Hopefully this will provide a comprehensive set of information.
