The Roll of Honour was unveiled by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, on 2 July 1921. The list of war dead began to be compiled during World War 1 when names of the fallen were posted in a window overlooking Exchange Flags and relatives queued to add names. The list of names was made available via the Town Hall's website in 2008, and now the team receives requests for relatives' names to go on the additions board, and there are now more than 13,500 included.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Anna Rothery said:- "It is a great honour to be able to add these names to the Roll of Honour, so that the sacrifices of these men are honoured at Liverpool Town Hall. Every year, new names are put forward and we will continue to add them for as long as we continue to receive them, to make sure that they are remembered, alongside their fellow servicemen. It is always a privilege to hear about those who lost their lives from their families, and build a picture of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy today."

The list includes Private William Sinnott, who was 1 of the famous Liverpool PALS, recruited by Lord Derby. Bill Sergeant from the Liverpool PALS memorial fund said:- "It amazes, but delights me that we are still identifying local men who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War more than 100 years later.  It is important that they are all acknowledged and remembered and I know that many of those attending the ceremony will share my pride that I can be present when they are at last given the recognition they so richly deserve."
