Shoreham Airshow Memorial

Shoreham remembers - book of condolence

This book of condolence holds the messages of support submitted from around the world following the tragedy at the Shoreham Airshow on Saturday 22nd August 2015.

Our thoughts are with all those affected. This sad event will affect all of us within the local community and those farther afield for some time to come.

The online book of condolence closed to entries on 27th November 2015, but this document has been created to view as part of the permanent record:

The Shoreham Airshow Memorial

Following close consultation with the victims' families, a series of personalised arches and a bench, where visitors can sit, reflect and pay their respects, were installed in 2019 near the Shoreham tollbridge to remember those who lost their lives in the tragedy.
