HMY Iolaire - list of all on board at time of grounding

This list shows all men on board HMY Iolaire at 1.55 am on 1st January 1919, prior to the wrecking of the Iolaire on the Beasts of Holm, offshore from Stornoway, in the Isle of Lewis. 

The list is grouped by village where the men came from. The list of casualties is shown first, then survivors (if any of either).

The list was compiled by Malcolm Macdonald of the Stornoway Historical Society in February 2006 (amended August 2007 and updated on 17th December 20008). Portraits were scanned from Loyal Lewis, Roll of Honour 1914 - 1918. Pictures of gravestones are from Malcolm Macdonald's own collection.

Other images were compiled by Guido Blokland (information in the pictures is not always accurate).
