Re: Commonwealth graves in France

The War Graves worldwide are maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves

"1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth forces died in the two World
Wars. Of these the remains of 925,000 were found and their graves are marked
by a headstone. Where the remains were not found, the casualty's name is
commemorated on a memorial. There are war graves in some 150 different
countries; mostly in the 2,500 war cemeteries and plots constructed by the
Commission. "

There is a searchable index of all the known fallen at their website at

Yours aye
