From helping our Archives team maintain our records to giving talks to schools and community groups, our volunteers help ensure that our history remains relevant to future generations.
Welcome to the CWGC
We honour and care for the 1.7 million 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.
