This data collection contains the book, Ireland’s Memorial Records - an 8 volume set compiled by The Committee of the Irish National War Memorial, originally published in 1923. These volumes provide information on over 49,000 Irish men and women who died in the Great War.

The individuals included in this work were either of Irish birth, had residence in Ireland at the time of their death, or had served in an Irish regiment. The volumes are arranged alphabetically by surname. Information provided about each person includes:

•Name
•Regiment number
•Regiment name
•Rank
•Details on how died (i.e. “killed in action”, “died of wounds”, etc.)
•Place and date of death
•Birthplace
