This collection of documents relating
to the First World War was assembled by the Commonwealth War
Graves Commission and its predecessors as part of the processes
involved in the commemoration of individuals. 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.
