The Commonwealth War Graves Commission Living Memory Project.
All summer we and many others have been commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission project is called “Living Memory” and they want to make a point of remembering the war graves that are located in the UK – amazingly there are about 300 000 of them.
The Norfolkinworldwar1 team have been contacted by the CWGC to see if we can help remember the war graves that are located in Norfolk – their research has shown that there are 514 graves in the Earlham Road cemetery in Norwich and 275 graves in Caister Old Cemetary.
The Battle of the Somme officially ended on 18th November 1916 and the CWGC would like to remember the men (and possibly women) who are buried in Norfolk’s cemeteries – not necessarily just the two we’ve mentioned here.
If you are interested in finding out more about tVhis project and would like to lay flowers on these graves to remember these people please do contact the @CWGC #LivingMemories project coordinator Virginia – her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and she’d love to hear from you.
If you do get involved in this project then please do let us know and we’ll mention it here too.
Many thanks on behalf of the Norfolkinworldwar1 team and the Living Memory project!
