Imperial War Museum's War Memorials Register

From the Imperial War Museum (

War Memorials Register

The IWM is compiling the War Memorials Register - the comprehensive national register of UK war memorials and the names of the individuals they commemorate. We currently hold records for over 74,000 memorials in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

War memorials form an important part of our cultural heritage and reflect the changing face of commemoration as well as artistic, social, local, family, military and international history. The Register includes memorials to members of the armed forces, civilians and animals from all wars and to those who died in service.

We now display records of the names of individuals commemorated on war memorials. You can find these on the memorial listing. We will be adding more records to the names database throughout the First World War Centenary so please check back for updates.
