Everton Remembers

The Everton FC Heritage Society hosted its annual Remembrance Service at Goodison Park.

Members of the Army, Navy, Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy were joined by representatives of Everton Football Club and various fan groups at the Dixie Dean statue.

Heritage Society treasurer Paul Kelly welcomed the attendees and the Finch Farm Chaplain, Rev Henry Corbett, conducted the service.

Each representative laid a wreath by the statue before Evertonian author and Heritage Society member, Peter Lupson, read out the names of the Everton players who lost their lives during the two World Wars.

The names are commemorated on special plaques that have been erected at Goodison Park.

A bugler then played the Last Post as the group fell silent to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Everton FC Heritage Society has produced a booklet called ‘The Fallen of Everton’, which includes brief biographies of the players who did not return from the wars and is currently regarded as the definitive list.

Research continues to ensure that no player has been omitted and copies can be obtained via
