We also recommend another excellent organization with a website offering thousands of FREE war grave and memorial photos worldwide. British War Graves - War Graves Photographs, founded and operated for over 10 years by Mick McCann in the UK, provides free photos for almost all the world’s war cemeteries and more.
With over 200 volunteers worldwide contributing photos to the collection, this is truly the place to look first to find a war grave or memorial photo – FREE !
Mick says . . . “If you are looking for a photograph of a British War Grave you are in the right place. We have thousands of photographs of War Graves from the UK & around the world. All of which are available free of charge.
“The photos are available to all - whether it is a family member looking for a photo of a relative's grave, someone researching their local war memorial, or who wants a photograph for their book. The aim of our site is simply to allow access to the collection. If the photos are seen, then the men whose graves are in the photograph are remembered.”
Although the organization and site says ‘British’ War Graves, they have so much more, and include all the men of all Commonwealth nations in cemeteries all over the globe – from Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa and Asia – truly a one-stop shop for your war grave and memorial photo needs.
BRITISH WAR GRAVES co-operates with other organizations who also believe in making war grave and memorial photos available free of charge like –
The AUSTRALIAN WAR GRAVES PROJECT,
THE CANADIAN WAR GRAVES PROJECT,
THE SOUTH AFRICAN WAR GRAVES PROJECT,
THE SCOTTISH WAR GRAVES PROJECT,
ASIA WAR GRAVES ,
and 'IN MEMORY' – a site dedicated to those buried in France & Belgium.
(You can find links to these and other War Graves Photo Projects on the BWG site.)
The quality of the photos is excellent, the response to requests is prompt, the service is great - and it's FREE !
