An introduction to the history and ongoing work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
Posted on 10th September 2023
An expert from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will be talking about the work of the CWGC which commemorates the 1.7 million men and women from the Commonwealth who lost their lives in the two World Wars. The cemeteries, memorials, graves, landscapes, and records in their care may be found at 23,000 locations and in more than 150 countries and territories. They are both the practical means of a commemoration of the fallen and vehicles for discovery, inspiration, and engagement. The CWGC records are invaluable when researching ancestors who died in the World Wars.
