• Teddington's Online War Memorial commemorates the fallen of the Second World War

To mark the 75th anniversary of the end of all Second World War hostilities, the Society is very pleased to launch its unique Online WWII War Memorial for Teddington.

In addition to the physical War Memorial in front of the hospital, there are 12 other memorials across the town, in places such as churches, the post office sorting room and the bus station at Fulwell. These list all those who fell during the First World War – but there are very few names listed of those who died during World War Two.

The new War Memorial website puts that right. It lists 159 local servicemen and women and 96 civilians who died during the air raids or due to other enemy action between September 1939 and August 1945. It has been meticulously researched and assembled by David Neller, who is keen to hear from local families able to share further names and details of the Teddington fallen. He can be contacted by email at daveneller@aol.com

Sheena Harold, Chairman of the Teddington Society, said, “An online Second World War memorial has long been in our sights, and how appropriate it is to have it ready for the 75th anniversary of the Japanese surrender, which brought the war in the Far East, and thus the Second World War itself, to an end. The benefit of having an online resource like this is that it has a global reach, and I have no doubt it will become an important resource for researchers and historians for many years to come.”

In addition to David Neller’s work, great credit is also due to Mark Buckley at Down to Earth Websites, who designed and did all the technical work to make the memorial website happen.

The website partners the Society’s online First World War memorial. Both can be accessed here:
