Derbyshire War Memorials

Over 1,800 memorials and 29,000 names listed so far.

Our Aim

To provide an inventory of about 4000 war memorials in Derbyshire.

It will concentrate on the memorials themselves and will, where possible, contain locations and descriptions of each one, including photographs and details such as type, construction, history and inscriptions. Although we include any names given on the memorial we cannot research or publish their biographies. (Many other sites publish biographies, however.)

Typical war memorials are:
  • monuments such as a cross, obelisk, cenotaph or statue;
  • plaque, board or tablet;
  • records such as a roll of honour or book of remembrance;
  • buildings such as parish halls, sports halls, lych gates etc;
  • land such as gardens, recreation grounds etc;
  • an addition to a gravestone;
  • endowments and other funds ...
  • ... and many, many others.
We include temporary memorials as well as permanent ones, and those commemorating peace as well as military conflict, civil war or an act of terror.

We do not condone or support violence or conflict, but seek to document the many memorials to men and women of any nationality who have served their country in the quest for peace or who have become civilian victims of conflict.
