The War Memorials of Sutherland

In order to see the latest version of this page please refresh your page, many links have been updated.

We now have a tribute section on the War Memorials also.  You will find lots more information there including many individual stories of the brave lads of Sutherland.  Allow plenty of time to visit. 

More photographs in our albums HERE

An index listing names of all those named on the memorials, alphabetically, showing the parish, their rank and in most cases the Regiment or Service they served with, is also available in PDF format. You can see it here. Save a copy if you so wish.  We also have a small document showing the many abbreviations used in the index here.

I would like to thank all those willing photographers who helped me achieve this huge, worthwhile, project.
