Metal theft

War memorials suffered from the rise in metal theft around 2011-12 and there were a number of high profile cases. However, more recent statistics show theft, vandalism and graffiti cases are relatively low as discussed in some of our regular news releases on the subject. War Memorials Trust provides advice on preventing theft thorugh its helpsheets and In Memoriam 2014. It also supports communities dealing with the consequenes of theft with advice and grants.
