A selection from more very kind comments we have received:

Thank you for all the wonderful work and support you give to the memory of all those brave men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom. All the family have asked that I pass on their gratitude for all your hard work and tremendous support, we all know how much you care you put in for all the families you have supported and we are so pleased our Aunt had the pleasure of meeting with you, your kind words and thoughts meant so much to her. Thank you again for your wonderful support.

A very big thank you for all you have done – you are a DIAMOND.

You have restored my faith in this country. Such a change from how it seems, where everyone is out for all they can get. I have really enjoyed talking to you and thank you for your help.

Thank you once again for all your endeavours, which are truly appreciated.

I sending this email let you to know how proud my three nephews were to see their grandfather’s entry on the Dover War Memorial Project. Thank you once again for all your work in putting together his entry.

It is certainly a very worthwhile project and the whole concept of Remembrance seems to have struck a greater chord with the public than at any time in the last 60 years. I wish you continued success.

Keep up your outstanding work

You are a very special lady and your supporters are extremely grateful. I really appreciate all your hard work.

Marilyn Stephenson-Knight does a great job researching Dover's war dead.

The virtual memorial is a phenomenal piece of work.

We think you are doing a wonderful job of work and bringing a lot of memories back from a time that was most stressful. It is a long, long time since those sad days but regardless of how old one gets we never forget our mates, who were not as lucky as ourselves.

I really do appreciate all that you are doing.

I just want to thank you so much for what you do; it’s marvellous.

You are performing such a wonderful service. Congratulations on providing such a wonderful resource.

I'm currently researching my family history and your record of [my great great uncle] gave me a lot of information. I think its lovely that people still remember those that died, especially the civilians that were in the wrong place at the wrong time, we remember the service men but a lot of people forget about those innocent ones that got caught up in it all, its brilliant that your project includes them and on behalf of my great great uncle I thank you for not forgetting him. I will be wearing my poppy with extra pride in November this year.

Thank you again for your kindness and tenacity in finding out and providing so much information. about this grave.

I have just found your wonderful website - wow!

Great website and a valuable reminder of bygone days. I was quite chuffed to see my granddad listed on your website, especially as it has informed me of a long forgotten "missing" aunty. Thank you.

It was great to meet you yesterday. I and my friend enjoyed your talk very much and think that the work you are doing with the Dover War Memorial Project is both wonderful , and so important.

Thank you so much. I am bowled over not only by such a speedy reply but also by the enormous trouble you have taken in response to my query.

I just wanted to say how moved I have been by the dedication of those involved in the project. We have been able to learn so much about the family through your archives, for which we will be ever grateful. I am so thankful for your efforts - I cannot begin to tell you how much this has meant to us all.

Keep up your outstanding work.

Congratulations to your wonderful site and keep up the good work.

I found your web site very interesting and helpful whilst doing some research for a book. Your web site is a treat for researchers.

I think you have done the most amazing job with the website. I spend a lot of time researching family history for friends and "non-blood" relatives and I've never seen another website like it.

Thank you for all your help. It really means a lot to our family.

I have just spoken to Mum who is so grateful. Once I relayed your message that her brother’s name would be added to the Memorial she broke down in tears of joy. Your hard work has made an 80-year-old lady very happy and eternally grateful... She said her father’s dying wish would finally be realised.

You have been tireless campaigning for this to happen and is very much appreciated by myself and, I''m sure, by all those who have wanted to see loved ones remembered on the Dover War Memorial.

Attending a memorial service for my father was a very proud day. It would not have happened without you, so a great big thank you. God bless.

 

Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf.

I visited the library recently and was pleasantly surprised to see a photo and details of my late uncle in a glass cabinet there. Sadly, we never got to know each other, but I do know that my father would be so proud to see my uncle’s name added to the Dover War Memorial.

Paid a visit to Dover library to see the photo cabinet, very impressed; well done. … Like myself my friend appreciates all the hard and good work you are doing.

I appreciate all that you are doing for us and our heroes.

Best wishes to you and long may your project continue to bring new light to these stories.

The Dover War Memorial Project, which is run by volunteers, is a fantastic organisation trying to ensure that ALL people who gave their lives for our country are recognised in a right and proper way.
