This book is compiled from the records maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission of servicemen and women killed or missing since the start of the First World War in 1914. The first list contains details of the location of the grave or memorial in Worcestershire naming servicemen or women who were one of five or less of their particular service rank who lost their lives. The second list contains details of the location of the grave or memorial in Worcestershire naming servicemen or women who were one of five or less of their particular regiment or service who lost their lives. Every life lost as a result of military service is a tragedy for the family and friends of the individual, and this book does not seek to imply that those listed here are any more deserving of memory than those not selected. The book shows the wide range of units from which only a handful, or even a single, life was lost, and also the wide range of ranks where also only a handful, or even a single, holder of that rank is commemorated in Worcestershire. The CWGC lists 307,131 names of dead and missing service personnel and members of the Merchant Navy who are remembered at locations in the United Kingdom. Of these just over 1,000 (0.3%) are to be found in Worcestershire.
