Welcome to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website!

We commemorate the 1.7 million 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.

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.
