The eleventh of November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. To commemorate this anniversary and to pay tribute to those men and women from County Wexford who lost their lives in this war, Wexford County Council Public Library Service has developed a public history research project. The aim of the project is to engage with the public online, to deliver a comprehensive list of persons from County Wexford who died in the Great War. The long term objective is to tell the unique stories and to commemorate the loss of the over 850 Wexford men and women who lost their lives as a result of the war.
The Criteria, set for inclusion in this list of Wexford Great War Dead, are persons who were:
Born in Wexford
Lived in Wexford
And were a Casualty (Wexford) of the Great War 1914-1918.
- Persons who were injured in the war and died later from wounds or illnesses relating to their time of service are included.
This research provides the basic data to enable people to participate in an Online Public History Project for County Wexford.
The public are invited to add to this record by telling Wexford Libraries the life story, as they know it, of their family member, or neighbour who died as a result of the Great War.
To contact us with information, please leave a comment on the website or email Wexford County Council Public Library Service at firstname.lastname@example.org with Great War Dead in the subject line. We can then verify that information from records and increment the lists and the stories relating to the World War I and County Wexford.
