“Let those who come after, see to it that their names be not forgotten”

Welcome to the website for the Leicester City, County & Rutland At Risk War Memorials Project

We are a not for profit organisation dedicated to the identification, preservation and rescue of war memorials which are at risk of damage, deterioration or loss throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The Project is majority funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Our next Open Day will  be held on Saturday, 17th November 2018 from 11:00am to 4:00pm and will be the last scheduled Open Day for 2018.   

 

NEW EXHIBITS

In addition to all of our Resident Memorials being on display, we will have two new features:

(1) - Aylestone & District Stained Glass Memorial Window.  This has now been cleaned and benefits from custom back-lighting to make a splendidly eye-catching memorial (read more here); and

(2) - Belgrave Working Men's Club and Institute. Two Rolls of Honour boards now lightly restored and framed.

 

**Admission is free** (although donations are always more then welcome!) and there will usually be someone from the Project on hand to talk with you about the work that we do. We are always interested to hear about your own projects of remembrance and family participation in the World Wars and other conflicts.

Further information about our Open Days can be found here which includes details of where we are located and how to find us.


We look forward to meeting you.
