VISIT THE BRITISH NORMANDY MEMORIAL

The British Normandy Memorial records the names of the 22,442 servicemen and women under British command who fell on D-Day and during the Battle of Normandy in the summer of 1944. This includes people from more than 30 different countries. Inscribed in stone, their names have never, until now, been brought together. The site also includes a French Memorial, dedicated to the memory of French civilians who died during this time.

On 6 June 2021, 77 years on, an historic moment took place as the Memorial was officially opened.

A year later, on the 78th anniversary of D-Day, the Memorial was for the first time the focal point of the commemorations in Normandy, as a place where people could come together to remember and reflect. This film below contains highlights of the day, including the morning service and evening concert, attended by Veterans, dignitaries and the general public.
