The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) honours the 1.7 million men and women who died in the armed forces of the British Empire during the First and Second World Wars, and ensures they will never be forgotten. 

The CWGC work began with building, and now maintaining, cemeteries and memorials at 23,000 locations in more than 150 countries and territories and managing the official casualty database archives for their member nations. 

Our churchyard contains ten such War Graves for the individuals shown in the table below.

A review of those buried in St. Peter’s has been prepared to mark the VE Day Celebrations 08-10 May 2020, detailing each individuals unique story. Please click on the image below to read or download the document:
