HOW TO FIND A CASUALTY 

 

The Commission's Search Our Records function provides information about men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died during the two world wars and the places where they are buried or commemorated. It also lists Commonwealth civilians who died during the Second World War as a result of enemy action.

You should be able to trace an individual, regiment, cemetery or memorial by putting just a few details into the  entry fields, but before you start, think carefully about the search you are undertaking and only enter information that is absolutely necessary.

WARNING - The more fields you use for your search, the greater the risk of getting something wrong. Remember that less is more and a FILTER can be applied to refine the results obtained.

IF YOU ARE AT ALL UNCERTAIN ABOUT ANY INFORMATION - LEAVE THE FIELD BLANK.

 

Other points to note:
Searches are not case sensitive. Search criteria may be entered in upper, lower or mixed case. Searches are not phonetic. The search will not find names that sound similar to the one you have entered.
