Welcome to The War Widows’ Association

To launch our 50th Anniversary year we have created a cook book with the help of our lovely members and supporters. At only £5 per copy plus £2 postage and packing (per book) it’s an ideal stocking filler or treat for yourself. With the fascinating stories that accompany the recipes it’s a really good read too.

To order you can either complete the online form HERE or PRINT the form or email remembrance@warwidows.org.uk and send it with a Cheque or Bank Transfer to

Remembrance Wall

In this very strange year where Remembrance Day will look very different for most of us. The Trustees know that, for our members Remembrance is every day. Due to restrictions you are not able to attend our Annual Service of Remembrance in London or perhaps any Remembrance service. Therefore, the Association has added this page to our website to enable you to pay your own personal tribute.

The War Widows’ Association of Great Britain was formed in 1971 becoming a registered charity in 1991 and has developed into the United Kingdom’s leading representative organisation for widow(er)s of Armed Forces Personnel where death has been caused by or hastened by service.

Everything that we do is based around our 3 core values….


Campaigning is the foundation of the War Widows’ Association; the Association has managed many successful campaigns to improve the conditions of War Widows and War Widowers.


We care by signposting members to the appropriate help and through our network of Regional Organisers we offer friendship and support.


Remembrance, the third pillar of the War Widows’ Association is a very important part of its programme of events.
