We’re the Friends of Falkirk War Memorial. We’ve been raising money to extend and refurbish the War Memorial in Dollar Park.
The memorial was unveiled in 1926 to remember the 1193 locals who died in World War I. Sadly it didn’t name the war dead, or the 463 others who died subsequently in World War II. We wanted to properly Remember Falkirk’s Fallen.
Following a fundraising campaign, and support from many people and organisations, we extended and refurbished the memorial site. New pillars and plaques – finally naming the local war dead – were unveiled at a ceremony on Sunday, November 3, 2019.
