Last chance to include heroes on Spalding’s new WWII Memorial
The deadline is looming for the names of all of Spalding’s fallen World War Two heroes to be gathered together so they can be immortalised in marble on the proposed memorial in The Peace Garden at Ayscoughfee.
The committee steering the project has set a cut-off date of May 8.
A list appears on the website www.spaldingwwiimemorial.org under ‘The Fallen’ but residents now have a final chance to add to the list or put right mistakes before the heroes’ names are carved with pride.
Coun Rodney Grocock, who heads the WWII Memorial project, said: “We want to give the good people of Spalding one final chance to come forward if they know of anybody that should be included within the list or if there is a discrepancy.
“In order for the name to feature on the new memorial, the person must have either been born in Spalding or have lived in Spalding.”
Supporting evidence should include the date of birth, date of death and service number (if known) so the committee can carry out essential research.
