We Will Remember the Fallen

Remember the Fallen

Remember the Fallen

Three years ago we featured the Remember the Fallen website on the Iron Room – the result of the hard work of one woman, Sandra Taylor, dedicated to ‘bringing to life’ the names on local war memorials.

Today, the number of war memorials and rolls of honour on the website now total 574, with a total of 22,254 names:

  • 533 Worcestershire
  • 14 Shropshire
  • 10 Gloucestershire
  • 9 Warwickshire
  • 4 Herefordshire
  • 3 Birmingham
  • 1 Staffordshire

Of the three memorials in Birmingham, one is the Austin Motor Company WW1 Roll of Honour No 1 which is now in Northfield Royal British Legion Club and records 197 names which are listed on the Remember the Fallen website.

A new improved website will be launching soon so please do have a look and show your support.

(The Library of Birmingham does not hold records of the Austin Motor company, but please do enquire with the Heritage Motor Centre.)
