Scope and content
Table 1 : Staff, students, and graduates of University College Dublin from the National University of Ireland War List, Roll of Honour, 1919. This table presents the names and details of the 488 members of the UCD community (including graduates of the Royal University of Ireland) who served in the British and Imperial Forces during the First World War. It is worth noting that two thirds of the individuals listed were serving in medical rather than combat appointments. Data presented includes the name, rank, and unit of the individuals lists along with details of the award of degree, years of study, or staff appointment of the individual in question. In addition, details of military honours and distinctions, promotions, and the status of the individual (killed, wounded, missing) are presented. The data is correct to 1919 and, as noted in the original Roll of Honour, may be incomplete in some instances including ‘owing to the difficulty in obtaining the names of Past Students’.
Scope and content
Table 2 : University College Dublin War Dead, 1914-18. This table cross-references data from the 1919 National University of Ireland War List with the details available on the Commonwealth War Graves Commissions database of war dead. In total, it lists 43 individuals from the University College Dublin community who died while serving as members of the British and Imperial Forces during the First World War. The location of either the grave or the memorial upon which each individual is commemorated is listed along with any data contained on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database pertaining to that individual including the date of death and, in certain cases only, their age, next of kin, and the address(es) of next of kin where known.
