World War 1 Memorials

Thursday 19 June 2014, The Gallery, Cowcross Street, London

Conservation and Commemoration, is a study day exploring the significance and stewardship of the architectural and memorial legacy of the War.

It will explore the diverse architectural legacy of the War, the 'hidden' war memorial heritage in church buildings, and current approaches to care and conservation.

The day will be especially relevant to those responsible for caring for war memorials. It will also be relevant to heritage and other built environment professionals; custodians of buildings and memorials; local authority War Memorials Officers; Diocesan Advisory Committees, Fabric Advisory Committees, Historic Churches Committees, cathedral authorities and others concerned with places of worship.

It will encourage those who might wish to become more actively involved in recording and caring for the architectural and memorial legacy of the First World War.
