New Commemorations of Great War Casualties

Many men who died after discharge from the Services are not commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and some serving members of the forces were omitted from records.  The sacrifices of all Great War Casualties should be acknowledged and CWGC will take care of their graves, where burials are identified.  In some cases private headstones are replaced or supplemented by War Grave Headstones.

Research on War Memorials and general issues have identified  a number of possible non-commemorations.  A more organised project started in late 2019 and work continues with In From The Cold and the Manchester Regiment Forum.

Recognising their sacrifice, background notes have been published for cases as they progress towards War Grave Status, or not.  These men are not forgotten.
