1939-1945 War Dead


This page gives references to list of war-dead etc for WW2: Note it does not claim to be complete (though I would appreciate any ommissions) but is a transcript of those names passed to the Manx Newspapers - in several cases these add extra local information to official listings.

The Examiner Annuals for 1941 through 1947 included a Roll of Honour sections which are extracted here - the headings are the year of issue (published in December of previous year) - there was no such listing for the 1940 issue (those who died in period September to Dec 1939 are found in the 1941 issue


FOLLOWING is a list of 66 Manx men and one Manx woman who have paid the supreme sacrifice in the service of the country. Six Manx men have also died whilst on service, and two were killed in accidents not connected with the war.

The following names have to be added to complete our list of men from the Island who fell during the war. In some cases definite news of their loss had been belated, owing to the difficulty of getting information from the Far East theatre of war, and in others - mainly airmen - their deaths have had to be presumed after a considerable lapse of time.

The present list brings the total Manx casualties, according to our records, to 446 men and five women of H.M. Forces who were either killed, missing, or died on service. In addition, 32 Manx people lost their lives in air- raids on Britain, making a total war toll of 483 people.
