IWM's War Memorials Register (WMR) is working to compile a comprehensive online record of all war memorials in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man together with the names of the individuals who they commemorate.
War memorials form an important part of our rich cultural heritage and connect us with the global conflict that shaped the world we live in today. They provide insight into the changing face of commemoration as well as artistic, social, local, military and international history. The WMR has recorded over 68,000 memorials so far, although some estimates indicate there may be 100,000 war memorials in the UK.
The public search for war memorials can be found on the IWM's website: http://www.iwm.org.uk/memorials/search.
We are seeking volunteers to help us continue to record additional war memorials, improve the quality of the data we hold and develop the names database, which lists the individuals named on each memorial.
If you would like to get involved in the project as a remote volunteer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
