Our objective is to make sure that our sites – from individual scattered graves to iconic cemeteries and memorials - are visited and explored as a permanent part of local heritage.
UK & Northern Area
We are building a local, community engagement infrastructure in and around the UK with your help.Learn about our work in the area
We wish to inspire and recognise volunteers from all over the UK. We are seeking support in letting communities know about our war graves. We do not ask for help in maintaining or cleaning sites, but to educate and inform people so that they know we are here. There are opportunities to volunteer at some of the Commission's key events this year.
To mark the centenary of the CWGC’s foundation by Royal Charter in 1917, an exhibition will be staged at CWGC Brookwood Military Cemetery near Woking, Surrey.
Poppies: WAVE will open at the CWGC Plymouth Naval Memorial later this year, specially presented by 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions.
