Historic England has announced 50 war memorials that are to be listed across the country, including a number in East Anglia, to mark Armistice Day.

Marking the centenary of the First World War, the listing are a bid to protect 2,500 war memorials by 2018.

The memorials are recognised for their historic and architectural importance and have been listed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport on the advice of Historic England.

"The First World War affected every community across the country, and local memorials are integral to honouring the memory of those who served. “As we continue to commemorate the centenary of the war, it is only right that we protect memorials across the country so future generations never forget the sacrifices that were made.”

– Tracey Crouch, Heritage Minister
