About Us

What is London Remembers?

The aim of this website is to document all the memorials in London. That's the plaques, monuments, statues, fountains, etc, that commemorate a person, an event, a building, etc. It's an aim we don't think we will ever achieve but we will enjoy the attempt. Our prime objective is not to research biographies, etc. – anyone can do that using web resources. This website focuses on finding the memorials, photographing them, plotting them on a map and logging them in a searchable database, thus providing a powerful research tool. As far as we know, we are the only people doing this: treating all memorials equally, from the rich and famous to the poor and humble.

Caveat: Be aware that London actually has more cars, more rain and less sun than our photos show.

So far we have found 51,887 subjects (people, events, etc.) on 3,418 memorials, at 2,654 sites.
