In 2014, the centenary year of the start of the First World War, we used local records, museum archives, and military records to identify new names to be added to the war memorial at Holy Trinity Church. This resulted in the engraving of five names not previously listed.
The leader of Fareham Borough Council can decide to add the names of servicemen that died in active service, with a clear connection to the borough of Fareham.
When a request is received, we ask the person submitting the request to provide information about the person concerned, such as place of birth, details of the military service, date of death in the service of their country. We appreciate not all of these details may be known.
If we can validate the information provided the Executive Leader is asked to approve the name being added to the War Memorial. When this is obtained arrangements are put in hand to add the name on the War Memorial concerned.
If you would like to see the addition of a name to any of the war memorials listed below please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
