In remembrance of the First World War, the Heritage & Education Centre (HEC) has started a brand new crowd sourcing project that aims to uncover the personal stories of Lloyd's Register staff that died during the First World War. Using materials from our archive, the Heritage & Education Centre team have published the employment and military information of the 15 members of staff that are named in our First World War memorial. The severe loss of life during the First World War often means that the individual lives of those that fought are forgotten. However, the team realise that our archived material, whilst offering a unique glimpse into the past, can only tell so much.
We are calling for any friends, family or researchers to contact us and give any information you can on these men. By using our contact form, you can ensure that each of these men are remembered eternally. The information given will then be published to each individual staff member's webpage; creating a unique portal that commemorates the lives of the 15 men who died for their country.
As well as updates to each profile, the Heritage & Education Centre will also be publishing further archived material relating to the First World War over the coming months. So be sure to watch this space!
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
For the Fallen by Robert Laurence Binyon
