Did EVERY minister lose a son in the Great War or does it just seem like it? It would be interesting if anyone ever collated all the ministers and ministers sons who died in the Great War.

I wonder how many were forced to question their faith after losing their sons.

There was a Roll of Honour produced in 1915 of Church of Scotland ministers serving in the forces and also the sons of ministers serving. I'm sure it was called 'Sons of the Manse'

After the war another version was published listing all those who had died. I can't find the details just now but I will post them when I find them.

I found a quote on Scottish ministers while looking for the R-o-H just now.

"The census of 1871 identified 5,123 males who were clergymen out of a population of 3.3m. In a modern context that would mean there were more ministers than there were people working in local government, and only a few less than those working for the national government"

That large number was down to the many disruptions within Scottish presbyterian churches over the 19th Century. Even by 1914 there must still have been several thousand ministers and thousands more sons of the Manse eligible for military service.
