The project will be developing over the next few weeks, months and years so we encourage you in the first instance to register to keep in touch.
At present we invite you to contribute by checking and uploading information about war memorials you see or visit, from a public memorial on the side of a road to a plaque to one person in a building. You can currently use our memorial pages to edit or create records with details including:
- Links to other sources of information
- You can also report a war memorial concern or a memorial ‘at risk’
As War Memorials Online develops it will enable you to:
- Check and add more information related to war memorials
- Submit comprehensive condition and security information
- Volunteer to be part of the war memorial community
Concerns reported through War Memorials Online, and condition updates indicating Poor or Very bad condition will be investigated by War Memorials Trust. If you would like to discuss concerns about a war memorial being ‘at risk’, neglected, damaged or threatened or would like information on grants or general war memorial issues, then please contact:

War Memorials Trust has been working with Historic England Education to develop teaching materials that guide school pupils and youth groups through collecting and adding information about their local war memorials to War Memorials Online. These materials are available on our learning website, www.learnaboutwarmemorials.org. For more information please contact our Learning Officer at email@example.com
As part of the First World War Memorials Programme, Civic Voice are running a number of free War Memorial Workshops across the country. These workshops are designed to help volunteers to complete condition surveys and upload these to War Memorials Online. Anybody can take part and the workshops include undertaking a site visit to a local memorial to put the training into practice. If you are interested in taking part, please visit Civic Voice’s website for further information www.civicvoice.org.uk/campaigns/war-memorials-/
If you would like to download a copy of the condition surveys used in these workshops, designed for use with War Memorials Online from Civic Voice’s website please click here
If you have physical artefacts or materials associated with war memorials then please visit our FAQs page for further information on what you can do with these.
If you would like to support War Memorials Online with a financial donation then please contact War Memorials Trust to discuss this. This website does not offer a donation facility nor can donations be accepted for a specific war memorial. It is hoped that in the course of this project custodian information will be collected enabling you to identify who is responsible for a war memorial should you wish to contact them to make a specific donation.
We will be developing a range of 'How to ...' guides to help you use the website. Please check back for further information or let us know what you would like advice on.

You may have received our Call to remember mailing. If so, thank you for responding and we hope you find your local memorial on the site. If not, please do add details and let us know about its condition. Our Call to remember leaflet is available to read as a pdf or contact us for a copy.
