Memorials to Hood's lost

The memorial pages to the men lost will always be the central part of this web site. Below we feature two of the 1415 men lost with the ship - one for whom we have a photo and the other for whom we do not. You can find out more about the men who died in the sinking of the ship by visiting our Roll of Honour page

Remembering Hood's crew


We want to remember and commemorate the lives of all the men who served in Hood from 1920 to 1941. To that end we have a page for each man about whom we have information. On these we record details of their lives and service as well as including photos of them with their families and service mates. Please visit our H.M.S. Hood Crew Database section to find out more.
