Welcome to ROYAL BOROUGH OF KINGSTON UPON THAMES WAR MEMORIALS ASSOCIATION's website.
On this site you will find the Borough's WW1 Roll Of Honour in both alphabetical and date died order as well as the Association's forthcoming events and Newsletter 'The Local Hero', which includes local stories about the fallen and how conflict has affected our community. It also includes a useful list of forthcoming local events.
Our initial focus has been on telling the stories of over 2200 men with a local connection that died in th e First World War (the 'Great War') but we are now also researching the fallen from the Second World War. We have been interviewing veterans and local people affected by confict.
We are a voluntary association helping local people and communities to learn more about the impact of conflict on the local community and the Borough's victims of conflict, many of whom are listed on our local war memorials. We have a local mission of remembrance, learning and reconciliation and a vision for a more peaceful world..
We are proud to be affiliated to Maldens and Coombe Heritage Society (http://maldensandcoombeheritagesociety.weebly.com)
