Welcome to our Virtual Memorial website. The Dover War Memorial Project
is run entirely by volunteers. The Project began on Remembrance Sunday, 2005, to honour all those we lost from
our front-line town, Dover: the Gateway to England. Much information on the casualties of war is
freely available in public records or the internet - this site is different. It introduces the people we so sadly lost, as remembered by those who knew
them. This site is a memorial, made with love, to those who gave their
lives and to the relatives they left behind.
It is a privilege to work on the
Project, to meet so many kind and courageous people, and to learn so
much of the dedication and sacrifice of those who died.
Dover can never replace them, and the world is much the poorer for
it. Here, at least, we can ensure that their memory remains forever
green. Welcome, then, as you meet some of those who never came home.
As you browse the site, please remember in your thoughts and prayers those who gave
and those who continue to give so much.
