Exhibition Curator: Tim Skelton – Co-author of Lutyens and the Great War, published in 2008 by Frances Lincoln

This web-based exhibition of Memorials of the Great War designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens O.M. launched on 4th August 2014, the actual anniversary of the start of the Great War.

From The Cenotaph, Whitehall, London to less well known village memorials, this exhibition has them all and will provide ongoing interest as it builds month by month until November 2018. You will be able to view the current month’s war memorial and also look back over previous months.

So, make sure that you visit us monthly thereafter for the next 50 months as we feature a different memorial each month.
