See the National Firefighters Memorial

The National Firefighters Memorial, on the Jubilee Walkway between St Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge, was unveiled in 1991 as a memorial to the service of firefighters throughout the Second World War, and particularly those who served London during the Blitz


In 1998, a decision was made to expand its remit so that it is now a national memorial of all firefighters in Great Britain who have lost their lives during active service.

In 2003 the Memorial was raised onto a new base to allow the additional names of those lost in peacetime were inscribed in bronze on it, then it was re-dedicated to coincide with the Service of Remembrance in Sept 2003.
