This 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. A
war memorial is a building, monument, statue, plaque or other
edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in
modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured
in a war. 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
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.
