Hastings War Memorial

Hastings War MemorialHastings War Memorial, in Alexander Park, was commissioned by the Mayor of Hastings upon the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28th June 1919. The Mayor, Mr A Blackman, announced “The Peace was signed today. On this day of rejoicing let us show our gratitude to the men who won this peace through Victory, made the freedom of the world secure and prevented the confiscation of possessions.” The memorial was designed by Margaret Winser, a Kent based sculptress who studied under Rodin. The dedication ceremony took place on 26th March 1922.

Hastings War Memorial lists the names of 1,253 service personnel from Hastings and St Leonards who died during the First World War. I made the list below as I could not find one through a Google search. The names of those remembered on memorials in towns around Hastings and St Leonards have been compiled by the Bexhill Observer and can be searched here.

There are fifteen panels that surround the base of the memorial. The list below presents the names in the order they are shown on those panels. There are some differences I’ve noticed between the spelling of names shown on this website and those on the memorial, however I have left the names as spelt on the memorial for this list. I have written the soldier’s rank out in full rather than the abbreviation present on the panels. Where I have not been able to interpret the rank acronym, I have left it as shown.

If you have a photograph and information about any man not linked on the list, I would be very happy to add them to the website. Please submit details through the ‘Add a Serviceman’ page.

You can search the list below by pressing ‘Ctrl’ and ‘F’ together and typing the surname of the person you are looking for in the box that appears in the browser window.

  1. Please be aware there is an error relating to my grandfather’s name, which is shown as Driver Albert Years – his name is Yeats.

  2. I see from your roll of honour that my Grandfather`s name
    is not included ….. Cpl` William Allen, 1st Bat`, Hampshire Regt`, 8007, killed 22nd May 1918, who also served with the 2nd Bat` and
    in the Boar War. Born at 14, Alfred Street, St.Leonards. I do hope his name is on the War Memorial. I am happy to share further details if needed. Also,… He is buried at Le-Vertanoy, France, British War Graves.

    1. Hi Gordon. Thank you for taking the time to comment. William isn’t remembered on Hastings War Memorial. I’ve double checked my photographs of the name plates, and the only two Allen’s are the ones listed on this page. This is not uncommon, quite a few local men who lost their lives during the war aren’t recorded on the memorial. I’m told this was not always an oversight by the authorities, it sometimes was at the family’s express wishes. I would be very happy to add William’s record to this website. If ok with you, please complete the form on this page and I’ll set it up for you: http://www.ww1rollofhonour.co.uk/index.php/add-a-serviceman/. Kind Regards, Kieron

      1. I have send off some details as requested but, would it be possible to check the War memorial again for Cpl` William Allen`s name around the area of Africa and Italy ?. Thankyou for contacting me I do appreciate it

        1. Hi Gordon, thanks for sending William’s information over. He’ll be added to this site shortly. I will check the memorial again – your photograph shows a plaque I must have missed first time round. Kind Regards, Kieron.

          1. Hello again Gordon. I found William’s name plus one other casualty on the additional panel on the memorial, so have updated this page with their details. Kind Regards, Kieron
