Welcome to the CWGC
We honour and care for the men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten. Funded by six Member Governments, our work began with building, and now maintaining, cemeteries at 23,000 locations all over the world.
OUR WAR GRAVES, YOUR HISTORY
From iconic memorials to your local churchyard, there is unique heritage to explore across Great Britain. No matter where you live, there will be a Commonwealth war grave or memorial near you.
