War Memorials Online This site brings together  information on the UK’s war memorials held by the leading experts. It  provides an unprecedented opportunity for the public to upload images of war memorials and log concerns for the conservation of these important community and historical sources for future generations.
The aim is create a complete picture of war memorials across the country. To do this the public is asked to help to ensure there are records for all of the UK’s war memorials. The Public is also asked to help ensure at risk memorials can be found before it is too late to save them. Anyone and everyone can get involved in discovering and registering war memorials for future generations.
The Project is a collaboration between War Memorials Trust, IWMs  War Memorials Archive (formerly UK National Inventory of War Memorials) English Heritage and members of the public.
