Roll of Honour
The Roll of Honour is hung just inside the entrance to the Glenridding Public Hall. We do not know who made it or when it was installed.
We have begun to research and write short biographies for those named.
It has 103 names on it and those who died have a small cross against their name. The list shown below is an exact transcription of the memorial. However, we have discovered a number of omissions and many mistakes on the memorial (such as incorrect rank or regiment, spelling etc), those identified are explained either in the footnotes to this page or are corrected in their biography.
If any reader has any details, stories or photographs, please let us know.

Known omissions and mistakes:
It is curious why three names that are on the War Memorial are not included on the Roll of Honour.
G R Bennett, the very first name on the War Memorial.
Private John Wilkinson
Private Cecil James Mason
Fn1 - Why Albert Rothery is described as a Sergeant and has a Cross next to his name is a mystery. He was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in December 1917 (ie before he won the Military Cross which is shown by his name), he also survived the war and went on to have a successful career with the Shanghai Water Company, before returning to Carlisle where he died in 1952.
Fn2 - Private Oliver Readshaw should have a Cross next to his name. He was killed just a month after his brother George. Like many of the mining families, the Readshaw's had moved away to the North-East to work in the Coal Mines. So, unless a relative or a friend was still in contact with someone in Patterdale and knew about Oliver's death, there is no way that the Memorial Committee would have known.
