Say Goodbye - Pages of the Sea

Say Goodbye

Millions left their shores during the First World War. On 11 November 2018 they were remembered in portraits on beaches across the UK and Ireland. Visitors to this website could choose an individual that shared their name or location to say goodbye and thank you to.

You can still explore the photographs of some of those millions below, including the faces of those seen on the beaches. Search by entering your name and location below.
