Brough Military Memorials
The Brough Family Organization (BFO) honors those "Broughs" who died while serving their family and country in military conflicts during and after World War I. The following weblinks allow members of the global Brough family to learn more about those individuals who served and sacrificed for their country.
Anyone with information about individuals who had the "Brough" surname and who died while serving their country during and after World War I is encouraged to contact the BFO with their names, service rank and affiliation, dates and conflicts in which they served, and weblinks about them and their military service.
In addition, the BFO recommends that families and relatives of those who died while serving their country consider posting such information on websites that specialize in publishing such memorial information (for free or minimual cost)--such as the following "Brough" servicemen who are listed on FindAGrave:
