Ireland's Memorial Records database

Ireland's Memorial Records is a new free to access web based database located at, produced by the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres ( in collaboration with Eneclann in Ireland ( and Google Europe.
From the site:

This search engine opens up the information as it is published in the records. Preliminary research proved that more than 10,000 of the men listed to have died in France actually fell in Belgium. Correct details about their place of burial or commemoration have been added, as part of the ongoing In Flanders Fields Museum project called The Name List. This project aims to assemble all fatalities of the Great War who died or were mortally wounded in Belgium, both civilian and military, and whatever their nationality. The Name List will be launched on 4 August 2014. A completion of the Irish Memorial Records, beyond the casualties linked to Belgian territory, should be ready by the end of 2014.
