Normandy Memorial Trust
The British Normandy Memorial
The British Normandy Memorial will stand in a place where history was shaped. From its elevated hillside position, visitors will have a clear view of one of the beaches where British forces landed on D-Day and on the columns of the memorial will be the names of more than twenty-two thousand men and women. An imposing site overlooking “Gold Beach”, one of the principal beaches where British forces landed on 6 June 1944.
Designed by the architect Liam O’Connor, creator among other things of the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, London and the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, England.
Liam O’Connor stated his purpose has been to create a design which takes full advantage of the position overlooking Gold Beach. It will be a place where, for many generations to come, people will be able to come to remember and reflect.
The site will be predominantly made up of landscaping with the central memorial court and cloister garden formed by stone piers onto which the Roll of Honor will be Inscribed.
Gardens feature throughout and will provide space for reflection and peace with the creation of an educational center designed to bring back to life the stories of those who fought through physical and virtual means.
