War Memorials Trust - Grants

Closing date

Grants of up to £30,000 are available for the repair and conservation of free-standing war memorials in England. These grants are intended to help those who are responsible for the upkeep of war memorials. The grants support the care and preservation of war memorials to a high standard, and to prevent the decay of this important part of our built heritage. Grants will normally be for 25% up to a maximum of 75% of eligible costs.


The Fund is open to anyone to apply; individuals or organisations, including councils. If you are not responsible for the war memorial you must provide written proof that you have the custodian’s consent to carry out the proposed works.

War Memorials Trust grants are to support repair and conservation works undertaken following best conservation practice. Almost all war memorials are eligible for support.
