See the Shrouds of the Somme
This November all 72,396 Shrouds will be laid out together in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London for the first and only time. This event is FREE and open to the public from 8th – 18th November
We will remember them
72,396 shrouded figures all made by one man. Each represents a British Commonwealth serviceman killed at the Somme who has no known grave, many of whose bodies were never recovered from the battlefields.
