In 2013 we received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a searchable directory of all recipients of the Victoria Cross, as part of that project we now need your help. We are asking you to participate in a photographic survey of the final resting places of our nations greatest Heroes. This will help us get the full picture on the current condition of all the sites and allow us to work towards ensuring that they are all restored to a fitting and appropriate condition. With the fantastic support from our friends at The Sun newspaper we have compiled a list of all known burial sites in the UK which we have produced below, all we ask now is you visit the ones closest to where you live and take a photo, then submit it to us using the form on this page. Please ensure that you only submit a NEW photo (taken after 21st April 2014) of the grave/burial site and include as much detail as you can, especially any damage. Any photos submitted that include people or company logos etc will be rejected. When visiting these sites please remember the following.
- Many cemeteries and church yards are still in use and the appropriate level of respect should be shown to the custodians and other users.
- Until we can establish individual status, we always assume that there is a family or an individual that owns the grave ( they are not public property)
- Regardless of the condition, please do not be tempted to try and clean any stonework or tidy the grave site. Full permission is ALWAYS required.
