War Memorial Surveys

The Club is planning a project to survey all the public war memorials in West Berkshire in support of the War Memorials Trust's programme that monitors the health of these important structures. We also intend to develop, were deemed appropriate, cases to submit to Historic England to get memorials added to the National Heritage List for England. If you are interested in helping, or are responsible for a memorial and would like help and/or advice please get in touch.
