Lewisham's war memorials

Our war memorials project aims to record all the war memorials in the London Borough of Lewisham.

War memorials wiki

We have created a war memorial wiki with details of all the memorials we have so far.

So far we have where possible a photograph of each memorial with a transcript of the contents, a list of the names, details of the location, when/why it was erected and by whom.

Help add to the wiki

We are asking people to help us flesh out the memorials with details that bring the names listed to life.

This information might be:

  • memories
  • biographical details
  • mementos
  • photos
  • documents.

A resource for local people and schools

The wiki enhances remembrance of those commemorated, but also creates a resource for local people and schools to use in researching Lewisham and its history. Anything contributed will be added to the archives for future generations.

About the project

This is a project started by the generous donation of Paul Dyer, a regional volunteer with the UK National Inventory of War Memorials. He donated a large amount of paper and electronic research on the war memorials in the London Borough of Lewisham area.

Ann O'Brien, one of the volunteers at the Local History and Archives Centre, has worked through this material and is in the process of creating a document containing all the information we have collected so far. We plan to produce this as a final hard copy, which will be held at the Local History and Archives Centre, Lewisham.
