This Roll of Honour commemorates the men of Dykehead Rows who served in the First World War. Dykehead Rows were cottages owned by the Summerlee Iron Company and housed miners who worked at the Dykehead Colliery, near Larkhall.
The Roll of Honour has been drawn and painted by hand. It lists the names of 15 men of Dykehead Rows who served in the Army during the First World War, two of whom were killed. There are several shared surnames on the roll and it is likely that some of the men will be brothers or cousins.

Thanks to Mr Barrie Duncan, assistant museums officer, South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture Ltd. for permission to show the images of the Roll here.
