Did you know?

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s work began in 1917 in the battlefields of Europe. Since then our task has grown into a global operation, caring for the graves and memorials of the 1.7 million Commonwealth men and women killed in the World Wars. More than a century later that work continues in over 150 countries and territories.
