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

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.
performing such a wonderful service. Congratulations on providing such a
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
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.
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.
