Oxfordshires War Memorials

County War Memorials

How was your town or village affected?

Memorials in towns and villages tell us what people felt at the time.

There are about 100 free-standing war memorials in the county and scores of other plaques, gates, panels and other kinds.  190 churches in the county have memorials, some have several.

Where a church and a war memorial are shown on the list below, the memorial is in addition to anything in the church. The list is incomplete - do tell us what is missing.

You can find more information on the UK National Inventory of War Memorials  .
