How do I apply to put a name on the Roll of Honour?

Those who served at Bletchley, but are sadly no longer alive, are currently listed in a register held and maintained by the Bletchley Park Trust. Although we cannot issue commemorative badges in respect of those who have died, GCHQ will support the Trust by preparing a properly bound copy of this register to be held at Bletchley Park, and by maintaining an online copy of it.

Go to the Roll of Honour, giving as much detail and supporting evidence about the person as you can.

Alternatively you can email info@bletchleypark.org.uk, or you can write to Bletchley Park at:
