The Guernsey Blue Plaque scheme recognises Guernsey people who have made an important contribution to the Bailiwick and the wider world.
The Scheme aims to enhance the awareness of islanders and visitors about these special people and where they lived or worked.
Each nominated person (or nominee) has to meet basic selection criteria.
The selection criteria include:
- The nominee must have been dead for 20 years or the centenary of their birth must have passed
- The nominee must have been born in Guernsey or have lived in Guernsey for a period of significant importance in their life or work
- A building associated with the nominee must survive in Guernsey
The Blue Plaques panel meets on a regular basis and members of the public are welcome to make a nomination, using the blue plaques nomination form (available to download at the bottom of this page), throughout the year.
Please read the blue plaques guidelines before submitting a suggestion using the nomination form.
