Learning Resources

The CWGC is dedicated to providing high-quality resources for all ages. We bring together tools, teaching aids, cemetery guides and interpretative material that supports the community in exploring their local CWGC heritage. Find education resources for use in the classroom, in a cemetery or on battlefield visits, as well as guidance and aids to family historians.

We publish a series of free information leaflets illustrating aspects of our work and major war cemeteries and memorials. You can view these leaflets online by opening the links below. The Commission also has several publications which can be purchased.
