North East War Memorials Project
The North-East War Memorials Project aims to cover every War Memorial, of whatever type, located in Northumberland, Newcastle-on-Tyne and County Durham as defined by the Pre 1974 boundaries.
By publishing and maintaining an inventory and catalogue of War Memorials in the North East of England, the Project aims to:
- Educate the public
- Assist historical research for the public benefit
- Foster patriotism and good citizenship
These aims will be achieved by recording, documenting and researching these memorials and, by these means, extending the existing archive. Members of the Public, and any other interested parties are encouraged to become Volunteers of the Project, assist in the verification of details already researched, provide current photographs, and take part in further study of information about the memorials and the people remembered on them.
