A Wesleyan Roll of Honour

At MyMethodistHistory.org.uk we are endeavouring to remember the 26,581 Wesleyan Methodists and 15,000 Primitive Methodists who gave their lives in the Great War.

The Wesleyan figure is taken from forms submitted by the Wesley Guilds. These were collated and sealed in a casket which was placed under a stone in the newly built Wesleyan Memorial Chapel at Catterick Camp. The Chapel was erected in memory of all the Wesleyans who were killed in the war, and opened on 8th August 1928 by Princess Mary, Viscountess Lascelles.

In order to compile the Roll of Honour, all Wesley Guild Secretaries were requested to write to Revd. Stanley H. Keen with details of all members of their church who had died in the Great War.

204 replies, listing 2,704 names, did not arrive in time for the dedication, and are now preserved at the Methodist Archive and Research Centre (reference MA 6001, Box 8, originally MA8030).
