"Private Harry Styles wasn't famous, but he should be remembered," so leads the tribute from the Royal British Legion.

Every soldier who died in the First World War, including those with a modern day famous namesake, is being commemorated on the Every Man Remembered website - a memorial for those who fell 100 years ago.

The website allows users to search a huge database to find relatives, add commemorations for those lost, and to donate money for the charity's work.

And as part of their awareness campaign, the Royal British Legion has put out a list of famous people whose namesakes were killed between 1914 and 1918 - including Andy Murray, Gordon Brown, Tom Jones, Alex Ferguson and the aforementioned Harry Styles.
