The aim of the project is to remind people that each one of the names listed on Pembroke's war memorial was an individual.
The first man killed was Henry Good Fielding Johnson, a corporal in the Royal Engineers (Divisional Signals). The mechanical sciences student must have joined up within days of war being declared (or already been a reservist) - he died aged 20 on 24 August 1914.
While the majority of those listed on the memorial were recent graduates or undergraduates from Pembroke, two of the men were college servants.
Dr Gardom said: "It's caught people's imaginations and it helps us as a college get the sense of the impact of the war."
