Roll of Honour - Swindon, Wiltshire, England
Great Western Railway

1914 - 1919

Roll of Honour

This memorial is in the form of a illuminated manuscript that was plainly created with great dedication and which somehow survived the upheaval that arose from the conversion of a redundant railway factory that closed in 1986 into a retail shopping mall. It commemorates the ninety-eight men who worked in "W" Shop of the Great Western Railway factory who fought in the Great War and of whom twelve died. 'W' Shop was close by this memorial and is marked on this 1911 plan as "Fitters, Turners and Machine Men".
