An entry in the Book of Remembrance is a simple and lasting memorial. The books each contain six months of entries which are displayed at the appropriate time of year in custom built cabinets in the Hall of Remembrance.

An exact digital replica of the books is available in the hall too which enables you to see your entry even when the books are not on display. This can be used by anyone at any time during opening hours.

Alternatively, you can view the Book of Remembrance here (Adobe Flash Player required):

There are three volumes per six month period and each volume has two pages per day - so please make sure you check all three volumes when searching for your entry.
