Find War Dead

Our casualty database contains information about the 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died during the two world wars.

You should be able to trace an individual, regiment, cemetery or memorial by putting just a few details into the entry fields.

Tip – filling in more fields for your search can increase the risk of getting something wrong. Less is more and a filter can be applied to refine the results obtained.

If you are at all uncertain about any information it is better to leave the field bank.

There are a few cases where certain names and characters may prove difficult to find. If you are having trouble with a particular search you can take advantage of our 'wildcard' function in the ‘Additional Information’ field. By placing an asterisk (*) at either end of the name (or a portion of that name), the search engine will provide you with a range of results containing the text you are searching for - allowing for a slight variation in character spacing, spelling and name order, etc. The results will compensate for any error in spacing and misuse or emission of the hyphen, etc.
