Presbyterian Church In Ireland -- Roll of Honour 1914-1919

Extract for the Congregation of Clenanees (Clonaneese), Upper and Lower

I have compared the entries in the Roll of Honour with the names recorded on the Memorial installed in the church. I have added those names not recorded in the Roll and noted any differences etc. I found either as a footnote or in brackets. For those fallen, where possible, I have also added a link to the relevant entry on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website ( and/or Soldiers Died in the Great War I have transcribed.

Upper and Lower Clonaneese were and still are seperate Congregations, though the returns made at the time were probably all put in as one. (Note: The congregations became one charge at the time the Roll was compiled and it is probable the minister supplied the information as one.)

  1. The church memorial gives the surname as "Conlan" wereas the Roll gave it as "Conlon".
  2. The church memorial gives the surname as "McMillan" wereas the Roll gave it as "McMillen".
  3. The church memorial for Lower Clonaneese records the name of "William White" but he was not recorded in the printed Roll.

These amendments were supplied by Raymond Cuddy, a member of Lower Clonaneese congregation (formerly spelt as Clenanees) and the Kileesill and Clonaneese Historical Society (

  1. "Joseph" Alexander was killed in action, not "James" as listed in the Roll -- he is listed in colonial forces.
  2. An Uncle of my father "Samuel G. Cuddy" is on our memorial but not listed on your list. I am not sure what unit he served in but was an engineer and was in France building bridges. For his work he recieved the MBE in 1920. He died in 1921 and there was no family so i have very little to go on.
  3. The other "Cuddy's" who served in the Canadian and US forces were like myself from Gorey not Aughintober. They would have had strong connections with the Orange lodge there.
