About Us

Terminology

Every human activity worth its salt has to have its own specialist vocabulary, so here's ours.

  • Site: A place on the ground (and pinpointed on the maps) where one or more memorials are to be found.
  • Memorial: A plaque, monument, statue, etc.
  • Subject: That which is commemorated: a person, an event, a building, etc. This also includes the “Memorial Creators”, those people and organisations involved in creating a memorial, such as the sculptor, the historical society who placed it, the celebrity who unveiled it, etc.

On each Subject page we have tried to provide a picture of the subject, from a website (address given as “Picture Source”) that also gives more information about that subject. If the link is broken please let us know.
