CWGC gravestone

These gravestones are all of a uniform size- an admiral's is the same as a seaman's. While most are Portland Stone, other materials such as granite are sometimes used. Although the vast majority are for service personnel, civilians killed in the service of their country are also commemorated. At the top of the stone is a crest. Below this are individual details: for example name, rank, decorations, regiment, death date and age at death. A religious icon may be placed beneath these; and below that an approved text of up to 66 letters. Visitors are often puzzled that the number of CWGC graves they can see does not tally with the number shown on the web site - this is because some families chose to have their own size and shape of tombstone.
