After the first world war (WW1) the United Kingdom (UK) saw its biggest ever display of public commemoration.
Amazingly the construction of tens of thousands of memorials paid for from public and private funding and also public subscription in many British villages, towns and cities resulted in there being only a few locations around Britain that does not have a WW1 memorial.
These memorials vary in size and design, everything from The Cenotaph In central London, to a small plaque in a rural church, yet they each hold equal importance and significance.
After coming across a story in my local newspaper in 2019 about 22 of the memorials being given listed status I took to documenting these as I pass them on my journeys around the UK.
This album will be updated and added to from time to time as I encounter these important structures and memorials on my travels.All the information that is supplied with these images is sourced from the EDP news paper and the WW1 Monuments and memorials in the United Kingdom website
