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 well.
war memorials and rolls of honour cover a variety of Regiments,
airfields and air bases as
well as the memorials and cemeteries in the countries
overseas where the men fell.

War Graves Commission site. To supplement this information the Soldiers
Died in the Great War CD's and the Roll of Honour books all available

other pieces of information from old books and magazines.

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.

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.
