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.
“This new memorial, the latest to be constructed by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, reaffirms our commitment to remember all those servicemen and women who died, no matter where or how they lost their lives.”
His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent, President of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
An appeal for relatives is a search to locate the next of kin for soldiers who fell in war. Could you be connected to any of these individuals?
The following burial and rededication services are due to be held at Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries.
Renovation works are currently taking place at this cemetery. Access to Commission plots located within this civilian cemetery might therefore be difficult at times. It is hoped that the works will be completed by the end of July.
Due to road works, we advise visitors to approach this cemetery via Eeekhofstraat and Palingbeekstraat until further notice.
