Since 1988 IWM's War Memorials Register has been creating a national register of UK war memorials and the names of the individuals they commemorate. IWM needs your support to ensure that we can add to and maintain our these important records.

There are four further plaques, two either side of the central plaque, listing those who served. There are four carved figures, one either side of the central plaque with the other two on the extreme left and right hand sides. These figures represent Courage, Life, Death and Endurance.
