Data Considerations

The names of the 225,981 soldiers from the British Forces killed in 1917 were provided by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Bear in mind that many men from Ireland, Canada, Australia and other nations also served in the British forces. Their military records are therefore in Britain and their names will appear in the UK names display.  For more information about each of the 187,705 names, including their place of burial, go to For information on The World Remembers display locations in the United Kingdom, please contact us at The Imperial War Museum provides many online resources for further studies at
