Welcome to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
We commemorate the 1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth
forces who died in the two world wars.
Our cemeteries, burial plots and memorials are a lasting tribute
to those who died in some 154 countries across the world.
Our Register records details of Commonwealth war dead so that
graves or names on memorials can be located.
