War Memorial Database Launched

 In Research Tips

A new online database covering British War Memorials has been launched  on thegenealogist.co.uk.

Currently the database comprises over 100,000 records, providing valuable details about civilians and soldiers killed during conflicts ranging from the Boer War to the more recent clashes in Northern Ireland.

Each record  includes details of the memorial with overview images of the entire memorial and is connected to Google Maps with StreetView to see its precise location. The memorial is in turn linked to the Imperial War Museum’s Memorial Archive, giving you further details about the memorial, such as who built it, when it was built, who paid for it and more.

A subscription to www.thegenealogist.co.uk is required to access this new database – more details can be found here.
