War Memorials Restoration Fund

In January 2013 the First Minister announced the launch of the Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund. (CMRF) This is a million pound fund available between April 2013 and March 2018 to help communities undertake repair and conservation work to war memorials in Scotland.

About the Scheme

The War Memorials Trust (WMT) is administering the scheme on behalf of the Scottish Government and Historic Scotland.

CMRF promotes current best conservation practice and this is a key principle at the heart of the scheme to ensure no works are damaging to a memorial and ensure it is maintained for future generations.

Eligible memorials

All war memorials of any type from any conflict are eligible.


Applications to the CMRF are assessed in rounds on the following dates each year: 28th February, 31st May, 31st August and 30th November.

Applications can be submitted at any time and should not be left until the assessment date as it may not be possible to consider them in time for that round. If a war memorial requires urgent attention please contact the War Memorials Trust to discuss this and if an urgent need is demonstrated assessment may be possible outside the normal assessment dates.

Applications are assessed based on the priority of the need for the works and their urgency.


Up to a maximum of 75% of eligible costs and up to a maximum grant of £30,000.

Further information on the application process can be obtained from Historic Scotland or the Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund.
