Every Man Remembered

The Royal British Legion, in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, 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.

The losses were felt in almost every town and village in the UK and throughout what was then the British Empire. We would like to see each and every one of these men and women individually commemorated throughout the WW1 centenary years. Every Man Remembered is an opportunity for you to be part of a great collective act of Remembrance.

You can make your commemoration at www.everymanremembered.org. Choose to commemorate someone you know - a relative or person on your local war memorial - or commemorate someone randomly selected for you. There is also an optional opportunity for you  to make a donation to support the Legion's work with the Armed Forces community, which would be greatly appreciated.

Remember Somme 100

For the centenary of the Battle of Somme, the suggested commemoration on the home page of our Every Man Remembered website, is a casualty from that battle.

There were over 420,000 British casualties in the 141 days of the Somme and each one deserves to be commemorated.

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
