IWM's War Memorials Register is a place where knowledge and photographs can be shared for the benefit of all. It is also a collaborative project, reliant on volunteers and members of the public to help it grow, expand, and improve.
We also invite members of the public to share more information about their local war memorials. Every contribution helps us to create a comprehensive record of sacrifice and commemoration in the UK.

Researching and caring for war memorials
Researching names on war memorials
There are many different ways to find out more about people named on memorials. IWM's family history guides can help you start your research journey, explain what records you will need, and where you can find them.
Cleaning, repair and ownership of war memorials
You should not carry out work on a war memorial without agreement from its owner or custodian. War Memorials Trust works to protect and conserve war memorials in the UK and provides resources which can help you take the appropriate steps to address any problems.
