About the inscriptions

Names were first inscribed on the Wall in early 2009 and additions are made chronologically, in batches of 20.

The Membership Office will advise you personally when the name of the person you are honouring is to be added and you will also be invited to a special ceremony.

In addition, you, your family, professional colleagues and friends can visit the Wall at any time to see 'your' name, but it would be helpful if you let us know in advance so we can host you properly.

Simply email membership@rsm.ac.uk or phone 020 7290 3930.


Formatting your name

The format for inscriptions is as follows:

TITLE, NAME, PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATION - then the year[s] of birth or birth and death, if you wish to include them.

For example:




You may of course choose to use initials instead of one or more names, but please note, there is only room for one post-nominal/academic or professional qualification.

To see who is already listed and on which panel of glass their inscription appears, please visit the Virtual Wall.
