IWM’s War Memorials Register is a comprehensive national register of over 90,000 UK war memorials and the names of the individuals they commemorate.
War memorials form an important part of our cultural heritage and reflect the changing face of commemoration as well as artistic, social, military and international history. The Register includes memorials to members of the armed forces, civilians and animals from all conflicts and to those who died in service. With no central organisation, each community chose their own design and wording, meaning that every war memorial presents a unique historical record.
