Listed status for war memorials

To mark the 100-year anniversary this year, of the start of the First World War, English Heritage is asking local people to suggest war memorials for “listed” status. Any memorials put forward are practically guaranteed to be made listed structures, which will protect them for the future and formally acknowledge their significance to local communities and the country as a whole. There are also various funding sources currently available to help with repairs.

 

If you have any suggestions for memorials to go forward for listing, please do take photos of them (all sides and details of inscriptions, etc), identify their location through a detailed description, or on a map, and send them to our Conservation Officer, Catherine Marlow, at Phoenix House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton EX16 6PP or email cmarlow@middevon.gov.uk. She will forward them to English Heritage for consideration.

 

To check if your war memorial is already listed, you can search the National Heritage List at: www.heritagegateway.org.uk
