War Memorials Trust

Can you help to record the condition of War Memorials in your town? The War Memorials Trust needs your help.

The following is from their website:

“War Memorials Trust works for the protection and conservation of war memorials in the United Kingdom. We provide advice and information to anyone as well as running grant schemes for the repair and conservation of war memorials. The website provides a range of resources to help you discover more about war memorials and their preservation. Please remember we are a registered charity relying entirely on voluntary contributions to undertake our work.

War Memorials Online is 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. Together, we can build a complete picture of the whereabouts, type and condition of all war memorials in the UK.

Anyone and everyone can start discovering and recording war memorials for future generations. Your content is vital.”

There are many memorials in Tamworth and the surrounding area.
