War memorials in Southwark

There are an estimated 70,000 war memorials throughout the UK in many differing forms; more than 300 of them are in Southwark. The memorials range from the frequently seen community crosses or plaques to buildings, lych gates, gardens, hospitals, organs, chapels and windows.

The UK National Inventory of War Memorials database includes memorials commemorating all conflicts, not just those of the First and Second World War. 

The Imperial War Museum has a reading room, open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm with a terminal that provides full information on individual war memorials.
