Using a map and the CWGC cemetery search function, I have so far found the following graveyards in which wargraves from World Wars I and II are located.

Where available, I have posted a general photograph of the cemetery concerned.

Please note that I have formatted the information on the casualties slightly differently from the CWGC information. It comes from my own database, which holds information about the men or women themselves, not available elsewhere.

The latitude / longitude coordinates given refer to the position of the cemetery gate.

Have added latitude and longitude coordinates to the list of cemeteries; this post is also intended to place it at the top of the list of threads.
