The Commonwealth War Graves Commisson (CWGC), an organisation that looks after the graves of UK and Commonwealth war dead, is appealing for relatives to come forward for 11 deceased service personnel. Could you be connected to any of these individuals? Many of the individuals are buried in sites across the UK and the CWGC is planning restoration work on the memorials.
