About the Liverpool Pals Memorial Pages

The Liverpool Pals Memorial Pages is an off shoot of The Liverpool Pals Memorial Fund which was established in 2011 in order to create a lasting Memorial to the men who formed and served in the Liverpool Pals battalions during the First World War. That memorial is now situated at Liverpool Lime Street Station, so the question is now how to create a living memorial.

With the full support and backing of The Liverpool Pals Memorial Fund these pages have now become a reality. Our intention is to establish the most complete information we can with regard to the lives of the Pals.

We have travelled extensively around Belgium and France taking photographs of headstones and names on memorials to the missing. Additional research has allowed us to build a database that we are now proud to share.

We would like to invite anyone who can add to these stories to contact us in order to allow the pages to tell the story of their relative.

Finally these pages would not have been possible without the considerable help and assistance of the many people who have helped us by sharing their research.
