First World War Archive

749 members of the Marlborough community – pupils, beaks and staff – lost their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918. Parts of their stories are contained in records held by the College, in particular in the Rolls of Honour which are kept in the Memorial Hall, and in the copies of The Marlburian of that time.

This valuable archive – the Rolls of Honour and copies of The Marlburian 1900-1925 – is now digital  and searchable.

The 749 Film

This film, which lasts 58 minutes, was made in 2014 as part of the College’s First World War Centenary Commemoration, and tells the stories of some nine members of the Marlburian community one hundred years ago.

It is based very much on their writings and on their experiences told through their own words, or through the words of those who have known them either personally or by studying them. It attempts to link their past with our present, and in so doing to preserve the collective memory of all those who served and who gave their lives.
