It’s nice to see you!

We are working diligently to gradually translate the content of our web pages. 

Get to know us and our work

The War Graves Commission, which is financed mainly by donations, looks after 836 war gravesites in 46 countries with about 2.8 million war dead. It is the only war graves service in the world that offers extracurricular youth work as well as its own youth exchange and education centers. 

"Graves Search Online" records the data of more than 5.4 million war dead. This source of information is freely accessible and is used annually by searchers from all over the world. 

This is how you can support our work
