Welcome to the War Graves Photographic Project


The original aim of The War Graves Photographic Project was to photograph every war grave, individual memorial, Ministry of Defence grave, and family memorial of serving military personnel from WWI to the present day. However, due to its popularity we have now extended our remit to cover all nationalities and military conflicts and make these available within a searchable database.

This service has only been made possible through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers, from all walks of life, who feel the need to Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and who realise the importance for families to see where their loved ones are laid to rest or commemorated. This emulates the CWGC ethos to 'Remember in Perpetuity'.

Commonwealth Casualties


Until as recent as June 2016 TWGPP was working as joint venture with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and through their network of Commonwealth offices like the Office of Australian War Graves, Canadian Veterans Affairs and the New Zealand Ministry of Heritage and Culture we were able to assist in photographic requests. This service enabled families, scholars and researchers to obtain, via CWGC links or TWGPP website, a copy of the photograph of a grave or memorial which for many is impossible to visit due to the location.
