Being one of the largest branches of the British Army, it is of little surprise that this Flash book, linking to a branded Website has been so successful at helping people to remember the lives of those they have loved or served with.
Within this book are the names of the 371 Serviceman killed in the 1955-1959 Cyprus Crisis. The Names link through to the Friends and Relations Website where some lovely stories, memories and tributes have been left.
This Book of Memories has been created for you to celebrate the life of a loved one.
The British Liver Trust is the UK’s leading adult liver health charity, all gifts made through this book will help to fund our patient information and support services, awareness raising work and vital research.
In this book members of the RAF family and indeed the public at large are free to add a name of someone, probably with an Air Force connection, to be remembered. What is more, they can create a celebration page for the individual and add pictures and Youtube clips too.
People looking at the book can (as with all of our books) use the search facility to find an individual and then add their own comments and photographs. Furthermore, this book links into the ability for people to create tribute funds through JustGiving meaning that the JustGiving donations pledged appears on the individual’s page.
We are delighted to be involved with this fabulous project celebrating 200 years of the Battle of Waterloo.
This book not only lists the 36,000 British soldiers who took part in the battle but also as part of the Waterloo200 project, enables descendants to provide anecdotal information and photographs of relevant memorabilia against their ancestor. This will provide a lasting record and testimony for generations to come.
Furthermore, from an educational point of view, 200 schools in the UK will be researching a soldier and submitting to a separate book their findings. The 200 schools are going to be asked to record their research into 200 artefacts from the battles thus combining to make this an educational project. On the 15th of June a special service will be taking place at St. Paul’s where representatives from each school involved will be invited to attend. At that time they will also be invited to record the details of their special day in a Visitors Chapter. This book will then be made public.
The Guide Dogs who are one of the UK’s largest and most well-known charities wanted to help expand their In Mem offering with the provision of a facility where a relatives of those for whom in mem donations had been left could create celebration pages and add comments, Youtube films and photographs.
The book is fully ‘accessible’ and in addition to their being a book for people to be remembered, there is also a book where guide dogs and other pets can be remembered.
