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.
CWGC WAR GRAVES WEEK 21st - 28th May 2022
War Graves Week is our annual awareness week that aims to encourage communities to come together and discover the World War heritage on their doorstep.
Many of the men and women who fought and died in the two world wars came from, and are today commemorated in, your local community – lying in cemeteries or named on memorials that were built, and are maintained to this day, by the CWGC – and we want you to learn more about them this War Graves Week.
