This is too big a file to upload to this website, but the book can be purchased from the Society. He gave an introductory talk to the Society which is reported in BDHS Journal 2015 (click on menu to left to access)
He followed this up in March 2018 with the article J3.3 below. This gives as much relevant information as can be found on each man (and one woman) who died in service in the First World War.
