Firefighters Memorial Book
The Firefighters’ Memorial Trust Online Book is the probably one of the most comprehensive books we have produced and has the details of every known fire-fighter who has died in Service since 1754.
This includes chapters for those members of the Salvage Corps, whilst on Military Service including the Boer War, Fire Watchers and Fire Guards from the Second World War and those actively being researched.
It really is a remarkable historical tome and is the Only place in the world where all the records are held in one place and fully available for the public to gain access and look up those relatives who may have been in the Fire service.
Members of the public are invited to help by submitting details on unidentified individuals and incomplete records.
Included in the book is a chapter listing those whose anniversary falls on today, from 1754 to last year.
This Day in History
Particularly poignant are the darkest days of the World War 2 Blitz, claiming the lives of scores of Firefighters, Fire Watchers and Fire Guards serving in cities and towns around the UK.
