A very special project took place during the demolition of The Boleyn Ground to salvage the commemorative bricks installed at West Ham United’s former stadium.
The bricks were purchased by fans and installed in three memorial areas around The Boleyn Ground, all of the bricks bear inscriptions and many are in memory of lost loved ones.
West Ham United has now moved to the London Stadium and the Boleyn Ground is now being demolished. Rye Demolition have kindly dismantled the memorial walls at the former stadium, brick by brick.
We are pleased to say that many bricks have survived the first phase of the dismantling process and they have been passed to For Nanny and Bobby (FNAB), in aid of The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, so that volunteers can return the bricks to the original owners.
We have received many enquiries and hope the following Frequently Asked Questions will help us return your brick to you if you had one.
The Boleyn Bricks have been salvaged by a group of Bobby Moore Fund volunteers with the aim of returning as many commemorative bricks to their original owners.
Whilst every effort is being made by the volunteers we cannot ensure that all of the bricks will make it through the salvage process. The bricks are stored in a safe place but there have been efforts by others to obtain these precious mementoes under false pretence and by other means. We do ask for ID from everyone calling in to collect a brick but we do this in good faith. We also have contact details for everyone who has paid for a brick to be posted. We cannot take responsibility for loss of bricks during the Salvage process, in storage or during collection or posting. Please rest assured that we treasure these bricks as much as the original owners do and will do everything in own power to return them to their rightful owners.
