Commonwealth War Graves Commission - India

More than 160,000 servicemen and women from Undivided India, who sacrificed their lives in the First and the Second World Wars, are commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission; the Commission has created a new website to explore their contribution - the website can be found here  www.cwgc.org/foreverindia.

From the trenches of the Western Front to the deserts of Mesopotamia, over 1.1 million soldiers of Undivided India served in the First World War. By November 1918, over 60,000 men from the subcontinent – diverse in culture, language and faith – had given their lives in service. In death, the remains of these men were treated according to their respective religions. While Muslim soldiers were buried and their graves marked by headstones, the remains of Hindu and Sikh soldiers were cremated, their ashes scattered according to custom.  Some are remembered on the CWGC’s 36 Cremation Memorials - from Patcham Down to Taukkyan - but most are recorded on the Memorials to those with no known grave.
