Planned correct spelling update on war memorial prompts appeal

Published Monday, 19 April 2021

Relatives or interested local people are being invited to suggest additional names or correct potential spelling errors on both the Beckenham and West Wickham war memorials.

The opportunity follows agreement to correct the spelling of a soldier from World War I and before doing this, so that no other changes are then made, the council has launched a unique appeal to relatives and other interested people if they know of other changes which also need to be made.  A notice period of four weeks is being allowed for interested parties to email suggestions to about the two war memorials in Beckenham and West Wickham town centres.  Enquiries therefore need to be received by 17 May 2021.
