The first ever Gazetteer of War Memorial Parks and Gardens, compiled and hosted by Parks & Gardens UK, has been updated! We are extremely pleased to offer information about even more of these special places across the UK...476 to be exact.

The updated Gazetteer can be found here (on page 2 of the article).

We would like to thank the volunteers and individual researchers for their contributions to the updated list. 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 info@parksandgardens.org. 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.
