The Royal British Legion, UK’s national custodian of Remembrance, is working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to keep alive the memory of those who died in the First World War. By Armistice Day on 11 November 2018, the objective is to ensure every fallen hero from across the Commonwealth is remembered individually by those living today. A total of 1,117,077 service personnel from the British Empire died in the war 1914-1918.
The Every One Remembered database allows people to commemorate relatives or someone they knew, or find a person for whom no-one has yet left a tribute such as a poppy or a few well-chosen words. The people being remembered came from the United Kingdom and the British Empire which included Africa, Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa and the West Indies. To date 944,412 have been remembered with 115,762 left to remember .New
