Welcome to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission blog

The CWGC ensures that 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the two world wars will never be forgotten. We care for cemeteries and memorials at 23,000 locations, in more than 150 countries. Our values and aims, laid out in 1917, are as relevant now as they were 100 years ago.

Drawn from many nations, we come together in their resting place, cared for with such dedication by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, to commemorate their sacrifice and to promise that we will never forget.
