site is dedicated to those men and women who fell fighting
for their country. Recorded here are various war memorials
within a variety of counties, it is fully intended to complete
as many war memorials in the United Kingdom as possible. The
counties and the war memorials completed for each are listed
on a separate page.
Photographs have been taken of the majority of the memorials,
details of the men included and their photographs where possible.
All counties are based on the pre-1974 reorganisation of the
political divisions in the United Kingdom. The main sections
have a menu at the top of the page of sections
that are available, these are on drop down lists. A site
map has been provided as well.
war memorials and rolls of honour cover a variety of Regiments,
air bases as well as the memorials and cemeteries in the countries
overseas where the men fell.

to the lask of resource it is not always possible for us to
reply to emails, especially research of individuals. We are
not a full-time organisation with staff, we are amateurs trying
to collate as much information as we can. As such we research
memorials as and when we can. The volume of emails received
precludes us from answering all but we do try.
people are looking, for a variety of reasons, for various
families of those who died in conflict. The latest requests
are held on the Information Requests
are always looking for volunteers to help. All information
included on the site is accredited to the person who worked
on it. You need help with transciptions, research and photographs.
the site owner, Martin
Edwards, if you are interested in helping. There is a
Template available for those who wish to you use it to
transcribe. If you left click on the link (not right) it will
load into Word and you can save it into your templates folder
as a base for new transcription documents.
we have a huge backlog of around 10,000+ emails to get through
containing new memorials and amendments. As we are volunteers
we can only devote so much of our spare time to this so please
bear with us. Although we do try to reply to emails the volume
is such that we cannot guarantee a response, sorry but there
is a huge amount of emails coming in and it is just not possible.
