A new website called War Memorials Online has been launched.
The Federation of Family History Societies has sent the following news:
“The website War Memorials Online brings together for the first time information on the UK’s war memorials held by the leading experts, providing a snapshot of war memorials across the country. It will also provide 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.
“War Memorials Online seeks to create a complete picture of war memorials across the country. But it needs the public to help to ensure there are records for all of the UK’s war memorials and condition reports to ensure at risk memorials can be found before it is too late to save them. Anyone and everyone can get involved in discovering and registering war memorials for future generations.
“It is a unique collaboration between War Memorials Trust, IWMs War Memorials Archive (formerly UK National Inventory of War Memorials) English Heritage and members of the public.”
