The Earl of Balfour unveiled the Stock Exchange memorial on 27 October 1922.

Due to the First World War and the subsequent fear surrounding borrowed money being called in, the Stock Exchange closed at the end of July 1914. As a result of the closure, the Stock Exchange Battalion of Fusiliers was formed for the 1,600 who volunteered service. The Stock Exchange did not reopen until 4 January 1915, with several restrictions in place.

An independent unit, officially named the 10th Battalion, was formed in the financial sector of London in 1914. It is known as the Stockbrokers’ Battalion and some of the men in this memorial roll were part of that battalion. You can also search our Royal Fusiliers, Stockbrokers’ Battalion 1914-1918 record set, linked to in the Useful Links & Resources section, to find additional members of the 10th Battalion.
