List of complete War Memorials

This page details the individual counties and the memorials that appear here for each. There are also overseas memorial and Rolls of Honour. From the main section there are also several searchable memorials available. Use the Google search to find specific information on these pages. The UK National Inventory of War Memorials lists each individual plaque within a church as a single memorial, the pages here may assume one memorial but this usually encompasses these. Memorials can ne town/village memorials, church memorials, school or work place memorials, individual plaques and corporate memorials the range is immense. The criteria for inclusion on a war memorial was set by the memorial committee and the reasons why men were included or excluded is now lost with their records. A man could be included on a memorial because he was born, resident, attended school or worked there or that his next-of-kin lived there, or didn't live there in the case of exclusion. To find the reasons why people were included you need to search out the minutes of the memorial committe meetings and local newspapers of the time.

Memorials range from the Napoleonic Wars, through the wars involving the Empire, the Boer War and other small wars to World War 1, the Great War, through to World War 2 and onwards through Palestine, Suez, Malaya, Aden, Mau Mau, Northern Ireland, the Falkland Isnalds and through to Iraq and Afghanistan.
