Roll(s) of Honour

BTP tree on ‘The Beat’ at the National Arboretum
(July 2013)

During a discussion this week at the BTP History Group A.G.M. there was mention made of the proposed UK Police Memorial, which will be on or in the vicinity of “The Beat” at the National Memorial  Arboretum in Staffordshire.

In particular, there was reference made to the National Police Officers Roll of Honour, which was created by former Metropolitan and Lancashire police officer Anthony Rae who, since 1981, has spent more than 36 years researching and compiling records of British police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. There is a specific BTP page on this website, which was in many instances the starting point for names included in our own British Transport Police – Roll of Honour (Line of Duty). We are pleased that Anthony has recently become a member of BTPHG, and that work is under way to synchronise both lists.

In addition, it should be noted that there is the roll maintained by the Police Roll of Honour Trust.

Both these websites are available from our Links page.
