The Southampton Cenotaph website contains the stories of servicemen and women from Southampton, England, who died in the First and Second World Wars and are commemorated on Southampton Cenotaph and the Memorial Wall.
The website was launched in March 2012 and was created and designed by Southampton Solent University students Jack Hannaway and Hannah Watts. Jack was studying studying for his M.A. in Multimedia Journalism and Hannah was working towards a B.A. in Media, Culture and Production.
Information was provided by the late Celia Fraser who initiated the Families and Friends Group and the project was and is supported by Steve Hogg and Paul Marchbank, Head of the School of Media, Southampton Solent University.
The aim was to create an interactive website that would enable families, students, schools, local researchers and others to contribute to the information about the Cenotaph and bring to life the stories of those named on the Cenotaph and their families.
This website contains copyright materials (images and text), much of it provided by families of the Names whose stories we tell. Out of respect please do not take copies of this work without seeking prior permission. Use the Comments box to write to us. Your co-operation would be appreciated by the families and members of the Southampton Cenotaph Families and Friends Group.
The Families and Friends research Group has gone from strength to strength and is continually supported in partnership by Southampton Solent University, together with many servicemen’s relatives who provide information, documents and photographs for the sites use with their work.
We are proud to have the Worshipful Mayor of Southampton as our patron.
