Living Heritage Memorials

Memorials

Members of the House of Lords, the House of Commons and the staff employed by Parliament have given their lives in service of their country at times of war and other conflicts. Their service is recorded and commemorated around the Parliamentary estate on a number of war memorials, in books of remembrance and through other commemorative artefacts.
