Virtually Visit Some of CWGC's Most Remote Cemeteries

Since the beginning of last year, visiting our cemeteries and memorials across the globe has had to be put on hold for many. So why not take the opportunity to explore and experience some of our most remote sites across the world using virtual reality.

Explore Kilchoan Cemetery in Scotland

Nowhere else in the UK is the challenge of access to war graves more obvious than in the Scottish Highlands and islands. Join Robert Ross as he checks on a single grave out in the far reaches of Scotland. He has to travel by boat from the mainland to get here and then must walk a couple of miles to the cemetery itself.

Dive into this VR video and join Simon Fletcher as he visits a grave marker in a family’s back garden in Georgia and searches for CWGC’s hidden headstones in Ukraine.

Visit Gaza War Cemetery in the Middle East

Despite missile strikes, power cuts and make do and mend machinery – CWGC’s war cemeteries in the Gaza Strip remain carefully tended oases of calm. In this story sphere Ibrahim Jaradah will guide you around the cemetery and tell you a bit about the history of the site.
