The information below is based primarily on the memorial books held at Malvern which Ian Quickfall, and now Paul Godsland, the Malvernian Society archivists, have arranged to be digitised with the official memorial web site still in development.
Information was also obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, and the Unit War Diaries and Service Records held at the National Archives in Kew.
The main battles have tried to be identified in which Old Malvernians died in. Many though were killed in the general attrition of Trench Warfare which was so vividly described in the book 'Nothing of Importance' by Bernard Adams.
The records can be filtered and/or sorted by house, age, date, place etc by clicking on the appropriate drop down box and then the 'View' button. The original memorial book entry can be seen by clicking on the person's picture.
