Summary
A fascinating and detailed look at how servicemen killed during the First World War were commemorated. Beginning during the war itself, it investigates the options available at the time - repatriation and normal burial were intially considered, but the sheer number of the dead precluded this, so cemeteries close the battlefields became the only realistic option. The book chronicles the work of Sir Fabian Ware and the Imperial (now Commonwealth) War Graves Commission in setting up permanent and beautifully maintained cemeteries after the war as well as the local war memorials, plaques in churches, books of remembrance and so forth that were created. It also offers advice on how young readers can find their ancestors' war graves
