If you have a heroic ancestor that you’re particularly proud of, there’s a new place to celebrate their life – Findmypast’s Hall of Heroes.

This new online memorial uncovers the remarkable stories of ordinary relatives in our family history as well as war heroes, cultural icons and everyday champions. From unsung underdogs to military medal recipients you can explore incredible feats of heroism and even submit your own ancestor to be featured.

Findmypast will be adding new stories of heroes that feature in their records each week so you may well see your family member take pride of place in the Hall of Heroes soon.
