The War Memorials Project

This project has started about 1987, and ran for 15 years up to 2002, with many volunteers searching for all the war memorials within our area, including from churches, cemeteries, town halls, offices, factories and other places of work, schools, sports clubs, and many places besides. Volunteers also extracted records from newspaper collections held in local Record Offices. The combined collection of 21,700 names was then collated and indexed, and produced as a CD, and the collection can now also be searched from this website from the War Memorials Search page.

However, with such a large project it is likely that some memorials, particularly the smaller less obvious ones, may have been missed. There is scope for a volunteer to do some checking. Now that the database is online it is entirely feasible to add in some further memorials if they are found and documented.

Any volunteers looking for this sort of work should contact the Projects Co-ordinator.
