Welcome to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website!

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.

Find out more about the scope of our organisation today by clicking on the links above.

We are sometimes approached by members of the public who wish to support our work. If you wish to make a contribution, you can use our PayPal account below to do so.


CWGC, delighted to find you had uploaded the documents detailing what families had asked for on the gravestone. Really brought it home.
