Fareham War Memorial

Unveiled Saturday 2nd July 1921 at 5.45pm

The unveiling of Fareham War Memorial, 2nd July 1921
1914-1919
The men whom this monument commemorates were numbered among
those who at the call of king and country left all that was dear
to them, endured hardship and faced danger, finally passing
from the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice
giving their own lives that others might live in freedom.
Let those
who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.
Erected by the inhabitants of the Fareham Urban District.

Also in memory of
the officers and men of the 26th, 35th and 108th heavy
batteries of the Royal Garrison Artillery.
Silhouette of Soldier

The 1919 date refers to the year when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. This was the peace treaty drawn up by the nations who attended the Paris Peace Conference and officially ended the state of war between Germany and the Allied Powers when it was signed on 28th June 1919.

The monument cost a total of £750 and was built by John Charles Langford of Fareham, to a design by Norman Henry Atkins and his brother. There were initially 200 names.

Please note that whilst every effort has been made to check the details on this page, the web designer / researcher cannot be held responsible for any errors that may have arisen. Although the War Memorial is adjacent to Holy Trinity church, we do not have any records about the individuals mentioned on the memorial itself. If any of this information is used, then I would request that this web page is referenced. A lot of time, money and hard work has gone in to producing this resource.

If you do have any information about those listed, or have spotted any error, then I would love to hear from you!

This is a work in progress with updates occurring on a regular basis. A number of additions have been made to the memorial itself. This list mentions all enscriptions up to March 2018.
