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.

‘Thus everything here seems to bring us to worship and to remembrance on this table-land of Thiepval; yesterday a vast charnel house, today a place of pilgrimage and meditation, where the souls of those who perished hover’
Address of the President of The French Republic, Albert François Lebrun, at the unveiling of the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, 1 August 1932.
