About the Register


The Register of War Memorials in NSW records the war memorials located in New South Wales and the veterans commemorated on each memorial.

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, our schools and our sponsors.

The Register of War Memorials in NSW was launched by the Premier and the President of the Returned and Services League of New South Wales (RSL NSW) on 22 April 2002 as a joint initiative between the NSW Government and RSL NSW.

The Register is hosted and maintained by the State Library of New South Wales.

Note for readers

The Register’s content relies on community contribution. While processes are in place to promote correct researched information to the best of our ability, the Register cannot ensure the accuracy and currency of its website content.


Community War Memorials Fund

The NSW Government has established the Community War Memorials Fund to help protect and restore war memorials across NSW.

Grant applications are considered by a State War Memorials Committee. Grant recipients are announced twice a year around Anzac Day and Remembrance Day. To be eligible for a grant, a war memorial must be listed on the Register.

Find out more about application dates and how to apply for a grant at the Community War Memorials Fund page.
