CWGC Living Memory and The FA

20 October 2016

The CWGC cares for 300,000 graves and memorials throughout the UK in more than 12,000 locations. Many lie in hidden corners of cemeteries and local communities are often unaware of their existence.

We need your help! Discover, Explore, Remember, and Champion CWGC war graves with your team this November.

Discover – find your local war graves by visiting www.cwgc.org.

Explore – when you’ve found your local cemetery, download the casualty list for info about who’s buried there.

Remember – visit the graves between 1st and 18th November 2016 and lay flowers, particularly roses if possible!

Champion – Tell others by tweeting a photo with your team tribute. Use these handles and hashtags - @FA, @CWGC, #LivingMemory, #Footballremembers. 

Email livingmemory@cwgc.org for your club CWGC Champion certificate. Tell us the name of your club, the cemetery or graveyard you visited, and who attended.
If you would like more information and a resource pack please email livingmemory@cwgc.org.
