Standing proudly in Paragon Street reminding everyone of the dark days of war during which all of the people in Kingston upon Hull suffered under the rain of bombs from the German raiders. Following almost five years of research, the memorial bears the name of those killed in our city during the air raids of both World Wars.
Some have proven impossible to identify and others simply disappeared during the raids. We have deliberately left two leaves blank as a tribute to their memory. (If you discover anyone we have missed, please let us know so that our error can be resolved.)
The Love of the people of Hull, for their city and for each other, is symbolised within the globe. A handful of silhouettes represent the thousands of volunteers without who so many more lives would have been lost.
This website is an ongoing development and the information included has been produced and provided by volunteers. If you notice any errors or omissions please visit our contact page and let us know. The site will then be updated accordingly. Thank you.
