Memento Mori

To mark the anniversary of WWI in 2014, AAiC has devised a programme called Memento Mori 2014 to show some of the unusual and interesting memorials that were established after the war. AAiC now has a library of photos of memorials, taken by Mike Dixon, of memorials in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, Some of the memorials will be part of a series of church trails across the three counties to be published in August 2014. A number of churches taking part are already researching family histories and thinking about permanent memorial books. The Mill Road Cemetery in Cambridge is doing a major project on the large number of WWI graves in the Cemetery, some of which are Commonwealth ones. The Cambridge trail will include the Cemetery as well as central Cambridge churches and colleges.

We hope you will find the photos both interesting and useful. Please do get in touch if we can be of any help.

Chosen churches by area:
Diocese of Norwich
Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich
Diocese of Ely
