Historic England and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission renew commitment to care for England’s commemorative heritage
Historic England and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission have published an agreement which sets out how both organisations will continue to work closely to secure the future of England’s commemorative heritage.
We are saddened to confirm that despite the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, a war grave plot in the north of England has been vandalised. The recently laid turf at Leeds (Harehills) Cemetery was ripped up and thrown at the Cross of Sacrifice and screen wall, bearing the names of World War dead.
Our charity arm, the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF) has introduced a new interactive way for families and young women to explore the story of the remarkable spy princess, Noor Inayat-Khan.
