Board of Trustees

The National Heritage Memorial Fund is governed by a Board of Trustees, chaired by Simon Thurley CBE. They supervise the overall management of NHMF activities and are responsible for strategic leadership and direction of the organisation.

Trustees are appointed by the Prime Minister and work within laws made by Parliament and directions given by Government. Their decisions about individual applications and matters of policy are made independently.
