Lloyd's Register and the First World War

2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War, a campaign which cost millions of lives and ushered in the age of modern warfare. The Lloyd's Register and its employees played an integral role in the war and our records tell a fascinating story. Inevitably, members of LR staff 'joined colours' and fought in the war. Fifteen of these men died either in battle or as a result of their injuries and are commemorated on our memorial.
