Heroes of Gairloch Parish

About this Resource

In 2017-18, Gairloch Heritage Museum was granted funds from Heritage Lottery to carry out its project to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. As part of this project, Museum researchers have created a database using some of the information from “Na Gaisgich: The Heroes of Gairloch Parish, World War I” by Ann Roots and William MacRobbie. This invaluable book details almost 500 people who lived in Gairloch and served King and country, 1914-1918.

You can search the summary database by name, home address, regiment/role and service, including medals awarded and, if relevant, place of burial or commemoration. We have added sections of photographs (including of objects) and documents from the Museum’s collection and archives. There is also a list of where you might research further. If you can tell us more of the local stories of the Great War, please do contact us.

Gairloch Heritage Museum has a useful archive and library facility for genealogical research. The Archive & Library are open for self directed research Monday-Friday 10am-5pm all year, except on public and local holiday. Use of this facility is by appointment only, so please telephone or email the Curator well in advance, to arrange your visit.
