Dates for Commonwealth War Graves Commission

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and War Memorials Trust are seperate organisations.


The 1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth Forces who died in the First and Second World Wars are commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Royal Charter set up the commission in 1917. The dates and people that are commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission differ from many other memorials.

  • First World War - 4th August 1914 to 31st August 1921
  • Second World War - 3rd September 1939 to 31st December 1947
