Lest We Forget

Welcome to Dover's Virtual War Memorial 

The Virtual Memorial was created by the Dover War Memorial Project
to remember with honour Dovorians
who fell in the two world wars of the 20th century.

The Events Committee of Dover Town Council have suggested erecting a sign on the lawns of the War Memorial garden, in front of the War Memorial itself. The proposed sign will be two metres (around 6.5 feet square). See here for more information, and here for our thoughts on this proposal. The deadline imposed for registering your views with the Town  Council is 3rd April 2009.                               image left compiled by Phil Eyden

Update: Owing to the many protests received, this proposal was returned to the Events Committee on 25th March. We were informed yesterday,  (27th March) by personal message from a Councillor involved with this proposal that it will be withdrawn and the sign will not be erected. Thank you everyone for so quickly letting the Town Council know your views.

Please help us remember those who died for us.

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.
