Overview
-

A Century of Remembrance is a study of one hundred outstanding United Kingdom war memorials which commemorate 20th century conflicts from the Boer War to the Falklands and Gulf wars. The first described is a Boer War memorial unveiled on 5 November 1904, and the last is the Animals in War memorial unveiled in London on 24 November 2004.

The memorials chosen are listed as near as possible in chronological order and represent different wars, different artists, different areas of the country, and a variety of types of memorial. In category they range from individual to national memorials and include memorials in schools, churches and places of work, and examples representing communities and the armed services. In form they are from statues and stained glass windows to arches, obelisks and cenotaphs, and from cloisters and chapels to art galleries and gardens and even a carillon.
