The St. Annes Roll of Honour, of men who are serving the colours and who have volunteered for service, contains 217 names, and the war has already taken its toll of their number.

Two are reported to have been killed in action—Private Isaac Street, of Clifton Street [now Curzon Road, St.Annes], at La Cateau, on August 26 and Private William Ball, of Clifton Street [now Curzon Road, St.Annes], in Northern France between December 4th and 12th. Private J. Unsworth, St. David's' Road North, was wounded at the Battle of the Aisne; Private George Pollard, of Hope Street, is also reported wounded. Stoker Martin Stenton, of the 1st Naval Brigade, is interned at Gronengen, Holland; and Private Richard Crook, of Albert Road, is a prisoner of war at Gustro, Germany.

The Roll of Honour was a list of men who volunteered and were serving in the Armed Forces and it would appear in the local newspaper or on a board at a place of work.
