Our Partners - The War Graves Photographic Project

 

TWGPP

We receive many requests from members of the public asking for photographs of headstones and memorials. Unfortunately, due to the numbers of casualties, the Commission does not hold photographs of each of its commemorations.

However, our partners, The War Graves Photographic Project, are a group of dedicated volunteers who have undertaken the immense task of recording, archiving and making available to the descendants, images of the graves or memorial listings of every service casualty since the outbreak of the First World War.

So far they have been able to photograph and record over 1.6 million named graves and memorials. To learn more about the project, search the online database or request a photograph please visit www.twgpp.org .
