The National Memorial to British Victims of Overseas Terrorism was designed by artist Alison Wilding and maker and sculptor, Adam Kershaw, as a dedicated place of remembrance, contemplation and reflection. Its design was influenced by responses to the public consultation held between January and March 2016.
The Memorial has now been completed and is open for the public to visit. It is located at the National Memorial Arboretum in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Please check the National Memorial Arboretum Website for opening times.
In July 2015 funding was announced for a site of remembrance for all UK nationals who have been killed in terrorist atrocities overseas. Following a public consultation an expert panel, chaired by Baroness Lynda Chalker, was established in August 2016 to lead the selection of the artist and design for the memorial.
A ceremony to dedicate the memorial to those that have lost their lives in terrorist attacks overseas took place on Thursday 17th May 2018 at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
