The Remembrance Project and The Fallen

Driven forwards by Rev'd Hugh Bearn and a collection of students, a historic research project was carried out that details the lives of 24 Anselmians who lost their lives during combat in WWI and WWII. Through this journey it has been discovered that one was in the GB Olympic team at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, another has a park named after him in Holland, another has a physics prize awarded in his memory and still yet another was the son of the Professor of Chemistry at The Victoria University of Manchester.​

There is a section of the St Anselm Hall Archive site dedicated to the sacred memory of these men of St Anselm Hall who lost their lives as a consequence of military service in World War I and World War II.

The aim of the Remembrance project is to lay a wreath at the grave and memorial of all the men of St Anselm Hall who died as a consequence of their military service in WWI and WWII. Below is an interactive map with their grave's marked, as wreaths are laid this will be updated with photos.
