LMHG are delighted to acknowledge the support and assistance provided to us by our numerous civilian and military contacts without whom much of our work would be both very much more difficult and in some cases impossible! Principal partners are shown on this page with the links to military units in the area shown on the drop down menu under "LINKS".

Our Prodigious Researcher -
Brigadier Jim Dennis (Ret'd)
A member of LMHG since its foundation: we are entirely indebted for the enormously succesful undertaking to create the "Reveille" database of names and biographical details of all those listed on the Districts War Memorials which can be found online at www.lancasterwarmemorials.org . This research is now a central plank of the Lancaster University mapping of the database currently underway and featured in the 'Campus in the City' project in February 2014. LMHG are currently preparing a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to apply for funds to carry out this new extensive programme.
It is with a profound sense of loss that we announce the recent death of Brigadier Jim Dennis. His work on the War Memorials of Lancaster and their corresponding Books of Honour will remain as an enduring legacy.
