Remembrance Across NSW

The Register of War Memorials in NSW records and recognises memorials across New South Wales built to honour and remember those who served their country, both in the Great War and in the following conflicts and peacekeeping missions.

There are more than 3,000 war memorials in our State, and the NSW Government and the RSL (NSW Branch) are committed to documenting each of these memorials with care and respect.  

This worthwhile task can only be accomplished using the combined resources of members of the community, local councils, RSL sub-branches and our schools.
