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.
