Has anybody got a link to a website which gives information on Norwegian servicemen? I have nearly two dozen pictures of Norse wargraves in Orkney (in St Olaf's and Lyness), and cannot readily find such info on the net. I can pull any Norse language sites through Google Translator (at my peril).

I don't think there is one, I have been looking for some time. I also wrote to the Norwegian Consulate in Edinburgh on the subject but never got a reply.

See here for what other country equivalents of CWGC I have found so far.

If you need any translation, I used to have some basic Danish (now very rusty) and the 2 languages are very similar - at least when they are written down.

Have plugged an email to the Norwegian Consulate in Edinburgh, let's hope I get a reply.

Reply from Norwegian Consul in Edinburgh

Reference is made to your e-mail of 8 November regarding the above matter.

To obtain more information about Norse military servicemen I would recommend you to log on DIS Norge which is the Genealogy Society of Norway on on www.disnorge.no. You may also find the Norwegian Armed Forces website useful; www.mil.no

Yours sincerely,

Having tried the above links, I experienced a drowning feeling. The DIS Norge site, operated through the Google Translator, generates 13 windows with search results.

thanks Guido

I was aware of the second site but I cannot see anything that really helps on either. If anyone is interested in one individual only then I guess you might get some help from the genealogy site but thanks to your efforts, we know that they have no CWGC equivalent so I guess all we can do on the project is just a transcription?

See http://www.regjeringen.no/upload/KKD/Kirke/NORSKE%20KRIGSGRAVER%20I%20UTLANDET_mai2008.pdf for a list of Norwegian War Graves Abroad (NORSKE KRIGSGRAVER I UTLANDET).

Does anyone know if the Norwegians operated a policy of repatriating war dead at the family's request similar to the USA?

I ask because a Norwegian soldier who died in a traffic accident in the north of Scotland in 1942 is not listed on that pdf.
