Memorials

Memorials are to remind us – via their listed/engraved names – of those men and women who, for whatever reasons, have no-known-graves. They come in many different shapes and sizes – see images below – and 45% of all WW1 and WW2 casualties have no-known-graves. Over 65% of all requests received by me are for such images – please photograph our War Memorials!
Thank You.
