Every Man Remembered

The Royal British Legion, in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and supported by Ancestry.co.uk, has developed Every Man Remembered, a project to individually commemorate over 1 million Commonwealth Service men and women who were killed during the First World War.

Inspired by Gemma

The losses were felt in almost every town and village in the UK and throughout what was then the British Empire. Over the WW1 centenary years, we aim to remember each and every one of these men and women.

The inspiration came from 14-yr old Gemma, who contacted us following a battlefield tour of France and Belgium with her local scout group: 

"I know that not everyone can be remembered as individuals, but I felt it was a shame for some people to have dozens of poppies and crosses while others had no one left to remember them." Gemma, 14

You can make your commemoration at www.everymanremembered.org, where you’ll also find an introductory opinion by TV Historian Dan Snow. Any additional donation would support the Legion's work with the whole Armed Forces community and would be greatly appreciated.
