About the Register

 

The Register of NSW War Memorials 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.

Community War Memorials Fund Grants

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

Grants will be considered by a State War Memorials Committee, which will assess applications and announce grant recipients twice a year around ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day.

Background

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 State Library is responsible for hosting and updating the Register.
