UK, Commonwealth War Graves, 1914-1921 and 1939-1947

Please note that the information in these registers reflects what had been reported to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission up to the date of publication. Since then further information may have come to light which is likely to have been reported to the Commission.

A collection of cemetery and memorial registers from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is in this database.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission was established in 1917 by Royal Charter to honor the men and women of the British Commonwealth who died in the World Wars. Cemeteries and grave headstones are erected by the Commission as part of that memorial. There are currently over 2,000 Commission cemeteries in about 150 countries. The registers of the cemeteries represented in this database only account for a small percentage of the total cemeteries in existence; this collection is by no means complete. for more click here
