Commemorative plaques

Salford has a number of existing commemorative plaques around the city to commemorate and celebrate notable aspects of Salford's heritage, including buildings, people and events. These help to connect residents, communities and visitors to the city's past, to foster pride and a sense of place and identity and to help ensure the custodianship of Salford's heritage.

Is there a person or event you would like to commemorate?

To ensure the quality, consistency and transparency of the scheme, we apply a set of criteria to all new nominations. Please read these carefully before you apply.

Please note that this is a self-funded scheme, meaning that applicants are required to meet all of the costs, including research, fabrication and installation. Costs are likely to be in the region of £500 to £800, depending on the size of plaque desired.

Submit a proposal for a new commemorative plaque

Application process

If you are interested in applying, please make sure you look at the guidelines and criteria for the scheme before completing your nomination form.
