Ireland's Memorial Records: WW1 1914-1918 by Eneclann Ltd

Ireland's Memorial Records: World War 1 1914-1918
(ECEC =Eneclann Ltd = http://eneclann.ie )

Ref: ENEC011
Author: Committee of the Irish National War Memorial
ISBN: 1-905118-01-5
Series:

The objective of these volumes was to preserve the names of over 49,000 Irishmen who lost their lives fighting in the Great War, World War I, 1914-1918. The collection was compiled by The Committee of the Irish National War Memorial under the direction of the Earl of Ypres. It is the most complete record known to exist and was published in 1923.

This record is unique in many ways. Firstly, not only does it record the names of the dead, it also records their rank, regiment, date of death and regimental number. In most cases the soldierÔÇÖs county or place of birth and the place and date of death are recorded. All 32 counties in Ireland lost men in the Great War. More than 5,000 from Antrim, 4,800 from Dublin and 3,000 from Cork alone. Indeed it is likely that every village, town and city in Ireland at the time was touched in some way by the loss.

Beautiful artwork by the renowned Irish artist Harry Clarke completes this unique production, as users can view high quality scanned images from the original publication. Only one hundred copies of the original publication were ever produced. It is extremely rare.

Users can either search or browse the books, names and entries. The CD also reproduces the original introduction from 1923, and a new preface with plenty of statistic gathered while databasing the collection. There is also a biography of Harry Clarke, with information about his artwork over many years.

Every effort has been made to produce a high quality facsimile of the original 8 volumes published in 1923, whilst also using the technology available today to ease access to that information and compile valuable statistics that will enrich our understanding of IrelandÔÇÖs place in the Great War.

This CD-ROM contains:

All eight volumes of the original publication, with 3,177 pages

Names of over 49,000 individuals who died, and all details about them recorded in the original books

Would you happen to know of anyone that has access to this CD as I am looking to find two Great Uncles that were killed in Action. I would like to be able to confirm they are listed prior to purchasing if possible.

1. Robert Lamont, born Dublin abt 1900
2. William Lamont, born Dublin 1897, killed in action 15 Mar 1917?

Father George Lamont, Mother Mary Ann Lamont (McConnell), of 31 Spencer Avenue, Dublin.

I believe one if not both were in the Irish Guard.

The cemetery was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in isolated positions chiefly south and east of the village and from the following small burial grounds:- ALDERSHOT MILITARY CEMETERY, Bouchavesnes, about 800 metres North of Bouchavesnes village. It contained the graves of 34 soldiers from the United Kingdom, belonging mainly to the 58th (London) Division which took Bouchavesnes on the 1st September 1918; but it had been used also in February and March 1917.

As wrote above I do not have access to the Ireland's Memorial Records CDrom. The Ireland's Memorial Records Book of which the CDrom is a copy does not contain all the names of Irish born who died in the WW1.

The book "The Irish Guards in the Great War" by Rudyard Kipling(ISBN:- 1-873376-72-3) contains a small section on before, during and after their action at SAILLY-SAILLISEL. Mostly about weather, terrain difficulties and losses(in general). They lost 14 dead in March 1917. In the back is list of all officers, NCO's and men lost during service in WW1
Your William is mention as the only Lamont to die with Irish Guards, First Battalion in WW1.

I have been unable to find any trace of a Robert Lamont born in Dublin, ca.1900 and died in WW1.
This of course does not mean that he did not serve and die in WW1. Finding people is quite difficult when researching WW1 records, a misspelling, a typing error an alias helps to confuse.

Success in your further research.

greetings
