Grants to support the repair and conservation of war memorials are available from the charity War Memorials Trust if it has raised funds. Support is focused on war memorials in Very bad or Poor condition or where there is a serious Concern.
Before applying for a grant you should read the advice available on War Memorials Trust`s website. The What we can and cannot fund helpsheet explains what types of work the charity can fund.
If you believe your project is eligible for a grant you should complete the Pre-application enquiry form. You will need to be registered and logged in to complete this.
The Pre-application enquiry form is a series of questions to see if your project is eligible. If it is, you will need to provide further details and submit current colour photographs of the war memorial in either a png, gif, jpg or jpeg format.
You can save your Pre-application enquiry form as you go along. Once submitted War Memorials Trust will respond.
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.
The central brass bears a dedicatory inscription ... Forget us not O land for which we fell/May it go well with England - Still go well/Keep Her bright banners without blot or stain/Lest we should dream that we had died in vain The repousse copper plaque to the left carries Binyon's elegiac words, THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD/AGE SHALL NOT WEARY THEM NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN/AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING/WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
