Map of War Memorials

Working in partnership with the Wolverhampton Civic and Historical Society and with support from Heritage Lottery Fund, we have developed a walking map of war memorials across the city. ​This is an exciting chance to learn and discover the history of Wolverhampton's own World War One story and how it has been incorporated into our city's landscape. Here you can view an interactive map of war memorials across the city or alternatively download a printable PDF version. heritage lottery fund
