During the two world wars, the United Kingdom became an island fortress used for training troops and launching land, sea and air operations around the globe.

Others died in training accidents, or because of sickness or disease. The graves, many of them privately owned and marked by private memorials, will be found in more than 12,000 cemeteries and churchyards.
