The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is responsible for commemoration of those who died in the two world wars while serving with the forces of the now Commonwealth countries. This commemoration is achieved through marking and maintaining graves for those who are buried, or memorials for those who have no known burial. In addition to providing this Internet access to records of burials/commemorations, assistance is available for more difficult traces, reports on all casualties by name, regiment, home town, date of death etc.
