The names on this list are taken from the memorial located on the recreation ground (see photo). Where possible I've inserted links to the war graves commission website. Collating this data is quite a slog and the site is still under construction, though I do hope to have it completed soon. Special thanks to David Finch of Eccleshill for providing information on RAF personnel.

The lack of a link can either because of a discrepancy between the memorial & the war graves records, or because I've been unable to match them because of multiple entries for the same name. (Please note the war graves commission website is damn slow & often down!). Where I'm not 100% sure of a match I've put a question mark by the name. The memorial & war graves records also differ as to the year of some deaths, these are

L/Cpl Arthur Firth (1914, memorial says 1916)

Pte William Blakeborough (1915, memorial says 1916)

Pte Ernest Wilkinson (1917,memorial says 1918)

In addition, some names appear to be missing from the memorial :

(Sgt Burrell was a pre war regular RAF serviceman and air gunner in the crew of P/O P E C Robinson . On the 17th September 41 this crew took off from Luqa, Malta in a Bristol Blenheim Z7755 to attack 2 small enemy merchant ships and 2 tugs sailing towards Tunisia. P/O Robinson and crew attacked one of the ships at very low level. There was moderate light flak and as they released their bomb load the Blenheim was seen to burst into a mass of flames and crash into the sea. The returning crews speculated on the cause of this crash and although flak was the most obvious cause it was thought that the intensity of the fire was not likely to have been the result of the light flak that was encountered. It was considered possible that the crash could have been caused by a faulty or incorrect pistol fuse on one of the bombs which had exploded immediately on release instead of with the normal 11 second delay required for low level operations of this type. Both merchant ships were sunk for the loss of 2 of the 4 attacking Blenheims P/O Robinson and his crew were pronounced missing in action and all are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. )
