How we are Funded

The Commission seeks to provide value for money and respect the environment in which the cemeteries and memorials are located. In 2015/16, the Commission received over £61 million in funding, provided by the partner governments of the Commonwealth nations who share the cost of the Commission's work proportionately to the number of their graves.
