The New Year Honours 1904, announced at the time as the Indian Honours, were appointments to various orders and honours of British India. The list was published in The Times on 1 January 1904,[1] and the various honours were gazetted in The London Gazette on the same day.[2]

The recipients of honours are displayed here as they were styled before their new honour, and arranged by honour, with classes (Knight, Knight Grand Cross, etc.) and then divisions (Military, Civil, etc.) as appropriate.

A list of appointments to the Royal Victorian Order was announced in the London Gazette on 29 December 1903.[3] These were not included in the New Year Honours list, as the individuals had already received their decorations in late 1903. They have been added to the end of this page to show the most complete picture of orders awarded.

The recipients of honours are displayed here as they were styled before their new honour, and arranged by honour, with classes (Knight, Knight Grand Cross, etc.) and then divisions (Military, Civil, etc.) as appropriate.
