Burial Information


Cemetery:

LEE-ON-SOLENT MEMORIAL
Hampshire, United Kingdom

Grave Reference:

Bay 1, Panel 3.

Location:

This Memorial will be found on the main sea front, sited on Marine Parade West, approximately half a mile west of the town centre. The principal base of the Fleet Air Arm, Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire, was chosen as the site for the Memorial to the men of that service who died during the 1939-1945 War and who have no known grave. The Memorial consists of a rectangular column of Portland stone bearing the inscription: THESE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE FLEET AIR ARM DIED IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY AND HAVE NO GRAVE BUT THE SEA. 1939-1945. Above the inscription is carved the Naval Crown with wreath and foul anchor. To each side of this central memorial stone is a wall bearing three recessed panels of Westmorland slate, on which are carved almost 2,000 names. The panels are protected by a wide canopy. The splayed flanking stone walls of the Memorial enclose a curved terrace approached by a wide flight of three steps and bounded by a low retaining wall. In the centre of this terrace is an inlaid compass emblem composed of a mosaic of Westmorland slate and selected marbles.
