Grave Registration Reports (GRRs) are standard forms which detail graves for which the Commission is responsible within a particular burial ground. They provide basic details of the individuals, such as name, service number, rank, regiment, unit and date of death, and are listed in Plot, Row and Grave order.
The Commission posted these forms to the next-of-kin of an individual in an attempt to verify the information that had been provided by the military authorities. Many completed forms were returned and contained the individual’s basic details plus any further information such as the next-of-kin’s chosen personal inscription. Unfortunately, around 99% of the Final Verification Forms for First World War individuals were destroyed in the Second World War.

As a result, they contain many corrections and alterations which reflect their use as working documents. For further information concerning the history of the collection, please see our About Our Records page.

Please be advised that some of the documents, especially the burial returns and exhumation reports, may contain information which some people may find distressing. The original archive records and their digital copies remain the property of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, but are available for re-use for private and non-commercial purposes.
