Everyone Remembered by the British Legion
The aim of the ‘Everyone Remembered ‘ project, as stated on www.everyoneremembered.org, is as follows:
“The Royal British Legion, as the UK’s national custodian of Remembrance. is working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to keep alive the memory of those who died in the First World War. By the end of the Centenary in 2018, our objective is to ensure every fallen hero from across the Commonwealth is remembered individually by those living today. This is your chance to take part in a truly historic and incredibly significant act of Remembrance.”
A list of names was drawn up by the Legion from information supplied by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and placed on the website. Each man or woman who died has an individual page where they can be commemorated. It’s easy to get involved. Just search for any name on the homepage and follow a couple of simple steps to reach the person’s page. You can plant a poppy, write a remembrance message and upload photos and a story if you have them.
By the beginning of May 2018 542,325 men and women had been remembered on the website. Radcliffe on Trent WWI Group have added commemorations for all those connected with the village who lost their lives as a result of the war.
