Project aims to photograph all war graves

By on 27 April, 2011
 
With ANZAC Day, and last week’s Diggers map article, still on the mind, we’ve had a relevant site forwarded to us from an interested reader.
 
The War Graves Photographic Project aims to photograph every war grave, individual memorial, MoD grave, and family memorial of serving military personnel from pre-WWI to the present day, and make these available within a searchable database.
 
Now working as a joint venture with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, this will enable families, scholars and researchers, via the CWGC or TWGPP websites, to obtain a copy of the photograph of a grave or memorial that for many is impossible to visit due to the location.
 

The project currently has approximately 1,608,050 photographs of individual Commonwealth War Grave photos, many of them ANZACs.
