IWM's War Memorials Archive (formerly UK National Inventory of War Memorials) is working to compile a comprehensive record of all war memorials in the UK to promote their appreciation, use and preservation.

War memorials provide insight into not only the changing face of commemoration but also military history, social history and art history. We estimate that there are approximately 100,000 UK war memorials, and we have recorded over 65,000 to date.

Search our online database of war memorials located throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

We record memorials commemorating all wars and peacekeeping. We also record a wide variety of types of war memorial, from familiar community crosses, obelisks and statues to less common memorials like bus shelters, sundials, park benches and even an island.
