The Liverpool Pals Memorial Pages

Liverpool Pals Queing to Enlist

A website that is dedicated to the memory of all who served in the Liverpool Pals battalions of The King's Liverpool Regiment during the Great War and the service in Russia.

The following pages were inspired by the men and boys who made up the 17th,18th,19th and 20th battalions as well as the 21st and 22nd reserve battalions of the Kings Liverpool Regiment during the First World War, more commonly referred to as the Liverpool Pals. Additionally, we are also including those men who joined the Liverpool Pals but who were subsequently lost in other battalions of the KLR or indeed other regiments.

Liverpool Pals 19th btn

Following the placement of a permanent memorial at Lime Street Station in August 2014, The Liverpool Pals Memorial Fund felt that a living tribute to the legacy of the Liverpool Pals should be made available to ensure that both the present and future generations can fully appreciate the sacrifice made by the first Pals battalions formed and the last to be stood down.

As can be appreciated these pages are not complete and it is hoped that they will be added to in the coming months and years in order to paint as full a picture as possible of the lives of these remarkable men.

They are here for the purpose of, for example, allowing people to utilise them for family history or for schools to allow in depth study of the Pals to assist with any projects or battlefield tours etc. It is hoped that families of the Pals will add to these stories where they can by donating to us photographs and stories of their relatives who served in the Liverpool Pals.

Many thanks are extended to people who have already contributed and allowed use of their own research in order to expand the scope of the stories available.

Our dead are never dead to us until we forget about them.
