Remembrance at Goodison Park and the Fallen of Everton F.C.

The Everton FC Remembrance service is held every 11 November at the memorial wall near the Park End Stand.

Organised by Everton FC Heritage Society (Paul Kelly supported by other members), and attended by representatives of the Club, plus participation by the local ministry, Everton in the Community, Everton Community School, aided by a piper and vocalist before members of the public.

Memorial Plaque and Current List of the Fallen
In 2011 a plaque in memory of men associated with the Everton clubs of England and Chile who lost their lives in both World Wars was erected near the Park End stand. Since that time, members of Everton FC Heritage Society have continued the research to see if there are more servicemen who should be honoured in a similar manner. For the most up to date listing of the fallen of Everton FC, please refer to the Roll of Honour found on this linked page.

This research has also been extended to include the Everton clubs of Chile and New Zealand.A booklet was produced to include a roll of honour for all three clubs, with brief biographies of the players.
