The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) honours the 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars and ensures that they will never be forgotten.
Since its establishment by Royal Charter, it has constructed 2,500 war cemeteries and plots, erected headstones over graves and where the remains are missing, inscribed the names of the dead on permanent memorials. More than a million burials are now commemorated at military and civil sites in more than 150 countries and territories.
Cullompton Cemetery has 8 Commonwealth War Graves. They are maintained annually by the CWGC and a sign has been installed adjacent to the Cemetery gates indicating their presence. The website of the CWGC allows users to search for War Graves and where they are:
