WAR heroes remembered on a Brentford memorial are finally to be recognised after fundraisers are given the go ahead to get it moved.
After a year of hard work, planning permission has finally been received for the transfer of the First World War memorial at St Lawrence's Church to the library alongside the other monuments.
London Borough of Hounslow has given planning permission and English Heritage and Secretary of State have also given their approval for the move as well as for getting the stone restored.
Member of Brentford Steering Group Julia Quilliam, managed to get a grant of £25,000 from the War Memorial Trust, she said: "We are so pleased that it is eventually happening, it has taken longer than we hoped but it's really really good.
"It's hopefully going to get taken away on the first week of July and it will be at the stone mason's workshop for a couple of months while it is restored.
"Our only concern is if the delicate front piece with the names on breaks, then we will be in trouble. It's tricky because the whole thing has to be dismantled to be cleaned."
The cause is one close to Julia's heart as her brother Gary was killed in the 2006 Nimrod crash in Afghanistan, while working for the RAF.
"We hope to get it in place in plenty of time for memorial Sunday," said Julia from New Road in Brentford. "Hopefully we can hold it's rededication service in mid September and get some of the guys from the barracks down."
