THE MEMORIAL BOOK

for those lost at sea with no known grave

The Memorial Book provides an enduring memorial to the many, representing a focus of remembrance for relatives, friends and the entire nation.

A LASTING MEMORIAL FOR THOSE LOST AT SEA

The Memorial Book was established by the Maritime Foundation in 1987 to provide a lasting memorial – a focus of remembrance for relatives and friends.

Entry is open to all who have been lost from ships, inshore craft, offshore installations and from beaches and who have no known grave.

ABOUT THE MEMORIAL BOOK

The Memorial Book is on public display at All Hallows by the Tower, in the City of London.

Anyone lost at sea for whom there is no known grave is eligible to be entered in the Memorial Book, irrespective of creed, nationality or the circumstances in which they were lost.

PROVIDING AN ONLINE RECORD OF THOSE LOST AT SEA

We have exciting plans to make all the existing records in the Memorial Book, as well as all future records, available online in an interactive, searchable resource that will be accessible to a global audience.

Why is the Memorial Book such an enduring and lasting memorial for those lost at sea with no known grave
