Servicemen from Liverpool will be honoured on Friday – 21 February – when their names are added to the Hall of Remembrance at Liverpool Town Hall.
Due to the high number of additions to the Hall this year, 37 in total, there will be two services. Relatives of the 37 servicemen have been invited to attend the relevant service and civic reception.
Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Gary Millar said: “I am honoured to be adding the names of these servicemen to the Hall of Remembrance.
“There is an unusually high number of additions this year and it is especially poignant as the city begins to look towards commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.
“This is an opportunity for us all to take a quiet moment of reflection and remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy today.”
The listings were set up on the Town Hall website a few years ago and from time to time the Town Hall receives requests for relatives’ names to go on the additions board.
The Roll of Honour was unveiled by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales on the 2nd July 1921. The list of war dead began to be compiled during the First World War when names of the fallen were posted in a window overlooking Exchange Flags and relatives queued to add names.
