|THE IRISH IN UNIFORM
THE TIPPERARY WAR DEAD
Because of the complex and extensive nature of the data table on the Alphabetical Namelists reached via the letters A to Z below, they will take quite some time to load, so please be patient. Thank you!
Many of those who died in "World War I" simply dissappeared in the chaos of battle; some lie in unmarked graves, and others lie in War Cemeteries anonomously. This headstone marks the last resting place of a soldier known to be of the Irish regiment called "The Royal Munster Fusiliers", but whose name, rank age and birthplace are unknown. As the inscription says, his identity is only "Known unto God".
The War Graves in France, Belgium, Italy and Germany in Europe contain memorials to the dead of both the 1914-1918 War and the 1939-1945 War. Other war graves exist in Africa, The Middle East, Far East, and on islands in the Aegean Sea and Pacific Ocean. War Cemeteries only record deaths which actually occurred in battle or in field hospitals. Some war-related deaths occurred after servicemen and women had returned home to recuperate, and suffered relapses from the after-effects of injuries or trauma months or even years later. The table below gives details of Tipperary men and women whose deaths occurred as a result of their service in 'The Great War', with details of some of their graves and memorials.
THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO MEN AND WOMEN WITH CONNECTIONS TO COUNTY TIPPERARY, IRELAND, WHO DIED AS A RESULT OF SERVING IN OR FOR THE MILITARY FORCES FIGHTING FOR EUROPEAN FREEDOM DURING 'THE GREAT WAR' 1914 - 1918.

ALPHABETICAL LISTS OF THE COUNTY TIPPERARY WAR DEAD FROM 1914 - 1918 HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THIS WEBSITE AND CAN BE ACCESSED VIA THE SURNAME INDEX BELOW. FURTHER DETAILS OF THOSE LISTED, AND OF OTHERS FROM THE COUNTY CAN BE FOUND IN THE BOOK "A BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF TIPPERARY" by Martin O'Dwyer ISBN 0 9535634 0 5 (see details at the foot of this page).
alphabetical tables may be used in several different ways
to aid historical research. The tables are shown on this
website in alphabetical order by surname in Column 1.
However, if you copy the tables to a text program on your
computer, you can then manipulate the data to find out
other things, e.g. putting Column 2 into ascending
alphabetical order will show all the men who died from
one town or village grouped together. Doing the same to
column 6 will show all those of one regiment or corps
grouped together, and similarly, Column 5 can be
re-arranged to show all the men of the same rank grouped
together and Column 3 will group by KiA ('Killed in
Action'), DoW ('Died of Wounds') and place of death.
Column 4 will group all those who died on the same day.
This last piece of information may be of help in finding
out where a particular man died, as it can be compared
with the dates of major battles as shown on the WW1 pages
of this Website via the World Index.
