Commonwealth War Graves
War Graves Commission is reponsible for looking
after the graves of soldiers who died during World
War 1 and 2. They do more besides but this is their
main responsibility. They are a charity and as such
need funds, please support them.
have supplied, on-line, a database of those who died
during the two World Wars. This is searchable and
if you are searching for someone is well worth using.
There are also records on-line for the National
Archives of Canada - many men from the United
Kingdom emigrated but still fought for the Canadians,
again this database is searchable and also an Australian
Roll of Honour database covering the Boer, First
and Second World Wars.
sites have either been listed as
an overview or specific memorials transcribed. To
transcribe the thousands buried in cemeteries such as
Karanji or Cassino is beyond our means but we can at least
give you a glimpse of some of these.
Note: Every attempt has been made to transcribe this information
accurately but there are occasions that the information
supplied is incorrect or errors occur during transcription.
We do not wish to cause offence to any families of the
men detailed here and will change the relevant information
note that places detailed on these memorials may appear
in the wrong county. This information has been transcribed
from the records given and, as the men were parochial,
the information supplied at enlistment was the view of
the men and the county they thought they resided in.
