Register of Plaque Schemes

The Blue Plaques Team has produced a register of plaque schemes across England with the aim of raising awareness of their rich variety and to promote dialogue between all those engaged in commemorative plaque projects, large and small.

So whether you are an individual wanting to propose a plaque locally, or an organisation interested in starting your own plaque scheme, this list should help you find out what is currently happening in your area.

Yorkshire Society plaque

A Yorkshire Rose slate plaque honouring Mary Ward at the Bar Convent in York was erected in 2007 by the Yorkshire Society, whose plaque scheme operates across the whole of the county.

Find a Scheme

The register is primarily designed for those seeking to contact the relevant local organisation in order to get their own commemorative plaque up or to find out more about a particular scheme.

For those wanting to look at individual or one-off plaques, there are many inspiring websites, eg Plaques of London, London Remembers and Open Plaques. The English Heritage register lists the individuals and organisations responsible for bringing the schemes to fruition and for looking after the resulting plaques once installed.

The Blue Plaques Team is most grateful to all who have so generously supplied information for this register.
