After WW2, many communities throughout the country added the names of their fallen to their existing Great War memorials. In the Borough of Epsom & Ewell, however, it was decided not to add another 342 names from WW2 to the 265 already on the Ashley Road Memorial.

Instead, it was decided to produce a "BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE" listing the people of the Borough who had been killed. This includes civilians who were killed by 'enemy action', presumably as a result of air raids. (Later research has added more service and civilian names to the 342 listed in the Book.)

The Book may be viewed in its specially made display cabinet in the Information Centre of the Town Hall. Under the protection of glass, a different page is shown each week.

The Book of Remembrance Display Case

On the wall above the display case is a wooden plaque that records the names of the 12 Council staff who died as a result of the war, some of whom are also recorded in the Book of Remembrance. Alongside that plaque is short piece of framed text giving a very brief summary of events in the Borough in war time. A transcript of that text may be viewed by clicking here. (Requires the free Adobe Reader software).

Clicking on any of the names on those pages will lead to more information about the individual. If you are searching for a particular name, a quicker way to the individual's entry would be to go to the relevant alphabetical index page via the links immediately below. As noted above, there were some Borough casualties discovered too late for inclusion in the Book of Remembrance. They are, however, included in these alphabetical pages, and are marked there with an asterisk.

Some individuals' entries are little more than the basic information drawn from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's databases or otherwise readily available. For others, there is already fuller material. Volunteers continue to work on extending the more basic entries, but are conscious that even the fuller entries contain some gaps. Please contact the Webmaster if you can provide information or pictures to extend any of the entries.
