COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES
IN LOCAL CEMETERIES
 
Search the cemeteries Cemeteries included  
Ten per cent of all First World War casualties are buried within the British Isles. The CWGC provides a memorial for all those who died in uniform between August 1914 and August 1921. There are several thousand men and women buried in cemeteries and graveyards around Merseyside. In some cases a family gravestone provides a suitable memorial but it is equally possible the grave will be marked by a stone that has been erected and maintained by the Commonwealth War Grave Commission (CWGC). Sometimes the service man was buried in a public grave. This means the exact place of burial is not known so individual gravestones cannot be erected. Instead, the CWGC have erected memorials listing the names of those who are "buried in this cemetery" somewhere within the grounds. These various sorts of memorials have all been photographed and recorded by The War Graves Photographic Project. They have also recorded some of the many 'ordinary' family gravestones have commemorative inscriptions to family members who are buried elsewhere or who have no known grave.
Furthermore, extracting information from the local burial registers will help identify many casualties. Discovering who else was buried in a family grave will establish family relationships. These burial records often give different, or even extra, information than that which can be found on the CWGC website. For example, Private J Woods is buried in Ford Cemetery. His age and full name are not recorded by the CWGC. The original burial register tells us his full name was John Woods, he was 41 years of age and lived at 24 Bond Street, Liverpool. Air Mechanic 2nd Class N M Steele is buried in Allerton Cemetery. His age and full name are not recorded by the CWGC. The original burial register tells us his full name was Norman Murray Steele, he was 18 years of age and lived at 12 South Albert Road, Toxteth Park. Information on how you can help with this or any other part of the project or about the various ways you can send us information about anyone you have found listed on this site can be found in the 'Get Involved' section.

This database can be searched for more than 2,500 names taken from WWI graves in the Merseyside area (Cemeteries included in this database).
The information will be displayed as shown below for the name LLOYD.
As many burials contain only an initial and not the full first name it is advisable to make your search as wide as possible. ie use LLOYD rather than T LLOYD but both of these are better than Thomas LLOYD.
If you search for the name CLARK your search results will include all names that begin with CLARK such as CLARKE and CLARKSON.
Further Search Options are available if you wish to limit a search such as all the Smiths in Bootle Cemetery, all the names that appear in South Sefton Cemeteries.
You can also extract the names of those who served with the Australian forces, all Airmen or all members of the King's Liverpool Regiment.
The table of Cemeteries included below indicates whether the information from a particular burial register has been extracted yet. If you would like to help extract information from any set of records not yet completed please contact us. Information on how you can help with this or any other part of the project or about the various ways you can send us information about anyone you have found listed on this site can be found in the 'Get Involved' section.
