Enfield Council calls for names for new war memorial

Published Wednesday, 12 August 2015

Enfield Council is asking all local residents for names of Enfield’s service men and women who sacrificed their lives in conflicts since 1945 for inclusion on a new war memorial.

The memorial, which is due to be constructed in early 2016, is being organised in partnership with the Suez Association and the Royal British Legion (RBL), and will be sited in Chase Green adjacent to the existing memorial.

It will bear the names of local men and women who have died post 1945, in conflicts such as Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said:  “I am delighted that Enfield Council has found a suitable location for this war memorial, so we can erect a permanent and proper monument to the members of the armed forces who have given their lives in service to their country since World War Two.

“Not only will this memorial recognise their sacrifice, but in the tragic event of Enfield losing any more of its sons or daughters in foreign fields in the years to come, we will be able to mark their sacrifice and provide a lasting reminder to their heroism.

“So we are asking members of the public to please let us know of any local people who have given their lives in any conflict since 1945, so that their names may be included on the new memorial and recorded for posterity."

Information that will be needed include:
• The person’s name;
• Their last address;
• Where they died;
• Which conflict;
• The date they died;
• The unit that they were serving with;
• Your contact details.

If you do not know all the details please send us what you can.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 30 October at 5pm

Please send your names to: 
Link or call 020 8379 1000 and ask to be put through to the Parks Business Unit.
