War Memorials Trust case: War Memorials Trust needs to avoid Contributors changing location/description details as we help to protect and conserve this war memorial through our casework. You can still add photographs, update condition and use the tabs below. If you believe any of the information you cannot edit is wrong or information is missing, please make a note of the reference number and include it in your email when you contact us.

About the memorial: UK & US Armed Forces: Memorials to Airfields or RAF stations are not necessarily war memorials. If the intent is to commemorate the site, then the memorial is to the location. If the memorial dedication includes reference to the military service, injury or death of those who worked at the site then it is more likely to be considered a war memorial. Often a review of the inscription will be key in making an assessment. War Memorials Trust keeps these records under review and also aims to ensure a Link is provided below to the relevant page of the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust - some of the information being added to War Memorials Online may be more appropriate to share with them.

As a conservation charity which gives grants War Memorials Trust can support repair and conservation works that follow best conservation practice. Grants are awarded from funds raised by the charity so money available is limited and is therefore focused on eligible war memorials.

War Memorials Trust’s Definition of a war memorial for funding purposes helpsheet explains which war memorials are eligible and ineligible for funding.

As a charity, War Memorials Trust relies on voluntary donations and every contribution, no matter how large or small, makes a really big difference to our work. Your donation will help protect and conserve war memorials for future generations so please support War Memorials Trust’s work.
