War Memorials Trust



War Memorials Trust vision is to protect and conserve all war memorials within the UK.


War Memorials Trust works for the protection and conservation of war memorials within the UK to ensure they remain part of our communities forever. War memorials commemorate our shared past, an important part of our national culture.

War Memorials Trust seeks to cooperate with other organisations, at both national and local level, to safeguard better the future of war memorials in both their social and historical context.

War Memorials Trust is an independent registered charity and as such is dependent on voluntary income.


New objectives were introduced by the charity in early 2019 for the post World War I centenary period. These relate to an initial three-year period 2019-22 covering the Trust's work within its areas of activity in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

  1. To improve the condition of war memorials, in their historic design and setting, to support their long-term preservation in-line with best conservation practice
  2. To increase the understanding of best conservation practice including how to maintain, protect, repair and conserve war memorials appropriately as well as raise awareness of the support available from War Memorials Trust
  3. To enhance public engagement with, and the recognition of local responsibility for, war memorials
  4. To sustain access to grant funding to support repair and conservation works in-line with best conservation practice
  5. To increase the money raised by the charity to deliver its vision to protect and conserve war memorials
