Remembered Today:

Number of CWGC Great War Cemeteries


Recommended Posts

At a recent presentation, I was asked something like "How many cemeteries are there in France/Belgium?" The lady was meaning First War, Imperial sites.

Off the top of my head, I guessed 1,200.

Was I even approximately right? Has anybody ever done a rough count on how many mostly 1914-1919 sites with mostly Imperial troops there are in Europe?

An answer doesn't immediately jump out on the CWGC website.

You can check that on the CWGC website.

624 = Belgium

2943 = France

That inlcudes memorials to the missing and all sites with a Commonwealth burial - not simnply those administered by CWGC.

Thanks Terry. Would those numbers be for mostly Great War burials, or is it impossible to differentiate between FWW and SWW?
