To protect and promote the spirit and substance of the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens OM
Lutyens designed over 50 war memorials at home and abroad ranging from well-known ones such as The Cenotaph to smaller ones in villages where he had been commissioned by his clients. Beginning on 4th August 2014 (the anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1) we will be featuring a new memorial each month. As the exhibition builds you can navigate from page to page or dip into the current month or previous months.
This is the Lutyens Trust's second web-based exhibition. For the first exhibition click here
