CWGC – Commonwealth War Graves Commission
and the Centenary
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission commemorates 1.1 million casualties of the First World War. It was a conflict fought all over the world, and Commonwealth servicemen and women served in many different roles on land, at sea, and in the air.
The graves of those who fell, and the memorials to those with no known grave, provide a unique insight into the history of the war.
This site will develop over the Centenary to help you discover more about the conflict, and where those who died are commemorated today.
