War memorials feature in a high number of local towns and villages. They may be elaborate, free-standing structures with sculpture or sometimes just a simple plaque. Most war memorials are now protected by listing and are carefully maintained by their local communities. They are a significant part of the local heritage.

The War Memorials Trust works to protect and conserve all war memorials within the UK.
