Here we have this publication entitled The National Roll of the Great War 1914-1918 on CD Rom covering the Manchester Area.
It was produced circa 1920 by the National Publishing Company, it was the companies initial intention too produce these Rolls of Honour to cover the whole country.
However they went into liquidation not so long after they began to produce them, a total of fourteen areas were produced before the companies decline.
They are set out alphabetically by surname, they contain a variety of details about each serviceman, including medals awarded.
They also contain an address for each entry, this would be the address of either the serviceman himself or his next of kin.
