Explore the cemeteries and memorials in your region

Across Britain there are war graves and memorials at over 12,000 locations. From towering and dramatic memorials which bear the names of tens of thousands of missing personnel, to small and intimate local churchyards where perhaps only one service person is commemorated, there is so much to discover.

Northern Ireland

At present, we don’t have the on-the-ground resource in Northern Ireland required to support the grassroots activity that our latest campaign “Our War Graves, Your History” is seeking to deliver in Great Britain. However, the tools we are creating through this campaign are available for anyone to use, anywhere in the world, and we look forward to expanding our activities into new areas soon.

It should also be noted that men and women from the Island of Ireland served with distinction with the Commonwealth’s forces during both world wars. Many made the ultimate sacrifice. Their records will be found under the forces in which they served, while their graves and memorials can be found throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
