Commemorating the people of Undivided India across the world

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission was established by Royal Charter in May, 1917, before the end of the First World War.

A set of principles were established which ensured equal honour in death for all Commonwealth forces, regardless of rank, race or creed.

It was in this spirit of equality that troops from Undivided India who died in the two world wars were honoured at the time and continue to be remembered today.

The CWGC commemorates a total of 161, 219 servicemen and women from Undivided India in fifty countries across the world, wherever they fought and died. However, there are a number of places that hold special significance for them, where many Indian troops are remembered.
