The War Memorials Listing Project
In 2014, to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, Historic England embarked upon a five-year project to add 2,500 war memorials to the List (officially known as the National Heritage List for England). The Government is funding this project through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
War memorials provide us with an enduring link to those hundreds of thousands who gave their lives in the First World War. This project will commemorate the role of communities across the country in the conflict. Working with volunteers, notably from War Memorials Trust and Civic Voice, it will make sure that the memorials are properly looked after.
