BCW Memorial Database Partners

The Cromwell Association

The Cromwell Association was formed in 1937 and its purpose is to increase understanding of the life, achievements and legacy of Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658). One of its core activities is the commissioning, on behalf of the Association, or in partnership with others, plaques, panels and memorials at sites significant to Cromwell. It is delighted therefore to be a partner in the British Civil War memorials project. For further information see www.olivercromwell.org

The National Civil War Centre

The National Civil War Centre - Newark Museum opened in 2015 and provides a national focus on the key events of the British Civil Wars of the 17th century and their consequences for the nation and the wider world.  The Newark Museum aims to tell the story of the district of Newark and its residents. The Civil War gallery, and associated temporary exhibitions, examine the causes, effects and legacy of the Civil Wars at a local, national and international level. Our aim is to become the place to go to learn about the Civil Wars and the effects they had on our nation, some of which are still felt today. Therefore, we are delighted to be part of the British Civil Wars Memorials Project. For further information see http://www.nationalcivilwarcentre.com/
