A new project from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission aims to tell the individual stories of those who lost their lives in the two world wars. .
This represents the next step by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) to honour and remember those from the Commonwealth forces who died in World War I and World War II.
A CWGC spokesperson said: ‘We've always been thrilled at the Commission when people share the stories about the people we commemorate. It adds real impact to the important work we do. For Evermore now lets us permanently capture these deeply touching and impactful stories online.’

Every story is linked directly to the CWGC's records, which means that website users can find out where each individual behind the story is commemorated, making it easy to visit their final resting place. The CWGC hopes this will create a deeper personal understanding of those we commemorate at over 23,000 sites in over 150 countries.
This project has been supported by the Post Office Remembrance Fellowship. Find out more at the CWGC website.
