Useful guidance for memorial custodians

Government responsibility for burials, which includes war memorials, was transferred to the new Ministry of Justice when it was created on 9th May 2007.

The new ministry incorporates the former Department for Constitutional Affairs which produced a useful eight-page booklet earlier this year giving advice on the management of war memorials.  The booklet, ‘War Memorials in England and Wales – Guidance for Custodians’, is available for download as a pdf file.  

It includes sections on identification and recording, conducting condition surveys, maintenance, removal and relocation, statutory protection, funding, access and dealing with omissions or errors on memorials.
