About Friends of Falkirk War Memorial
We are a small group of local volunteers determined to correct the omission of the names of the war dead from both world wars from the Burgh of Falkirk war memorial at Dollar Park. The names were omitted when the memorial was unveiled in 1926 with more omitted in 1953 when plaques marking World War 2 were added..
Our plans are to carry out not just the very necessary repairs to the present memorial but also to extend the footprint of the memorial back into the park to allow new pillars to be installed to carry the over 1600 names of those who died. Our objective is to have the work done by November 2019.
We intend to use the best of material as befitting the memory of those who paid the supreme sacrifice, with costs are estimated at around £120,000. To this end we have applied for funding from various sources but would wish wide public support also as happened in the past. All donations would be received gratefully.
