This website gives details of the graves, or memorials to those who have no known grave, of those killed while serving with British and Empire/Commonwealth forces during World Wars I and II. Search is by surname (family name) and initials. Read very carefully the advice given about searching under 'Help'. When putting in initials, for example, use two at the most, without full stops (periods) and with a space between them. The 'Nationality' is that of the service in which the person served , not his/her own nationality. Irish people serving in World War II, for example, are included in British, Australian, Canadian or other categories, depending on the unit in which they served.

This site allows searches of the CWGC database of WW I graves by other criteria than name. E.g. all those in a named regiment killed on a particular date can be found, or all those from a particular district.

This project aims to photograph every headstone and monument in the C.W.G.C. cemeteries. Copies are provided for a fee.
