Click on the link to view the War Memorial Parks and Gardens Gazetteer. It is provided as a downloadable PDF and organised by country.

The first publication of the Gazetteer (December 2014) had over 400 entries on it across the United Kingdom. This update (April 2016) includes an additional 30 sites bringing the total to 476. We hope it will inspire others at a local level to contribute information about their war memorial parks and gardens for inclusion in future updates of the Gazetteer.

New submissions and enquiries can be sent directly to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For submissions, please include the park’s address; some details of its history and especially how it came about; and a brief description of its key features, especially any dedication stone. We also welcome a few photographs, which can include historic images.
