Names on the Hall of Remembrance at Liverpool's Town Hall

Heroes of WW1 Remembered

Servicemen from the region, including those found on a lost memorial, will be honoured next week, when their names are added to the Hall of Remembrance at Liverpool Town Hall.

On Tuesday 3 June 43 men from the region who lost their lives during the First World War will be remembered at special ceremonies, which will be attended by family members of those being added.

Five of these men were listed on a war memorial which was found in a garden in Toxteth, however they were not listed in the Hall of Remembrance.

Following some extensive detective work and a small media campaign, relatives of all five men have come forward and their names will now sit alongside fellow service personnel in Liverpool’s Hall of Remembrance.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Gary Millar said, “I am honoured to be adding the names of these men to Liverpool’s Hall of Remembrance.

“This is a particularly poignant ceremony as we not only mark the start of WW1 this year but we are remembering those whose forgotten names were found on a lost memorial.

“It is vital that we keep alive the memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom.

The listings were set up on the Town Hall website a few years ago and anyone wishing to check their relatives can do so by visiting http://www2.liverpool.gov.uk/hallofremembrance/
