The Firefighters Memorial Trust book

The Firefighters Memorial Trust book contains all of the name of those who have died in the firefighting service or as a result of their injuries. Once fully identified their names are added to the memorial outside St. Pauls Cathedral in London.

This also includes the brief details of 512 Fire Guards and 1270 Fire Watchers from the whole of the UK who died as a result of their service during the Second World War.

Also those who served in the military from the Boer War onwards, plus chapters with the police and company employed persons, going back to the 18th Century.
e.g. Fireman John Young serving with the Sun General Insurance Fire Brigade who died due to service injuries on the 9th January 1726.
There were some particularly dreadful days when over 100 firefighters perished during the height of The Blitz
There is a chapter for individual firefighters not fully identified to aid researchers and allow full recognition of their courage and service.

Leaving Book for Allan

We created a world first with our fully searchable online books, complete with turning pages, and now with this clever book, we’ve done it again!

We were asked to create a leaving book with a twist, as the user is visually impaired. But the beauty with all of our books are their accessibility meaning the visually impaired user can utilise text to speech features and listen to the messages left for them.

Being such a versatile book, it could even be used as a beautiful birthday or anniversary book, and more, providing users with a unique and exciting way to share memories and celebrate important milestones together in an interactive, easy to access online book.
