Missed me­mo­rial

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WRITE IN -

I re­cently launched a new web­site, war- me­mo­rial.co.uk, based on my grow­ing col­lec­tion of de­tailed pho­to­graphs of war me­mo­ri­als (and all the names on them), tran­scripts and in­dexes. I have been work­ing on this project since 2009.

I am at a bit of a loss as to why Phil To­maselli’s ar­ti­cle on war me­mo­ri­als could not even men­tion this ex­pand­ing new re­source. The data­base of names is al­ready over 280,000, with over 21,000 pho­tos of over 1,100 me­mo­ri­als. An­other batch of pho­tos and data are be­ing added this week, and I am work­ing on the next few batches to be added to the site, so that by Christ­mas I ex­pect to have the data­base of names at well

over 300,000, with over 23,000 or 24,000 pho­tos of per­haps 1,300 me­mo­ri­als.

And Phil To­maselli (and the edi­to­rial team) con­sider my work and the web­site un­wor­thy of a men­tion! Mark Her­ber, by email

Ed­i­tor replies: We are sorry that your web­site was missed from the ar­ti­cle, par­tic­u­larly as we fea­tured the launch in our Sum­mer is­sue. The ar­ti­cle was a very last- minute ad­di­tion, due to cir­cum­stances be­yond our con­trol. We should add that Mark’s war me­mo­rial data­base and im­ages are also avail­able on TheGe­neal­o­gist.
