The Trafalgar Roll

The Trafalgar Roll - Part of a genealogy site, this page lists British ships and seamen (some 1,640 of them) who fought at Trafalgar. There are also lists of killed and wounded and brief descriptions of some other naval actions.

The recorded names are probably correct but there is a note of warning at the site, "The details have been copied as accurately as possible from the original list but there are some instances where the wording is indistinct and cannot be read with full assurance of accuracy. In these cases ?? have been used to indicate uncertainty. "

From the site:

This information has been compiled from a long list of the awards made to the seamen who fought in the various Royal Navy ships under the Command of Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21st October 1805.
