Victoria Cross Trust
Who we are
Victoria Cross recipients killed during the First and Second World Wars are commemorated with a grave or memorial that is protected by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
There are a further six graves that the CWGC look after on behalf of the MOD, including Lieutenant Colonel Herbert ‘H’ Jones and Sergeant Ian McKay both of whom were killed in the Falklands.
For all other VC’s who died in other conflicts and of old age, the responsibility and upkeep of their graves remains with the relatives. Consequently many have fallen into disrepair through neglect or lack of funding, family members have died out or their memory has been forgotten.
The Victoria Cross Trust, through your generous donations, work in partnership to ensure the memory and graves of VC recipients are remembered and maintained to honour their valour.
