The Royal British Legion, as the UK’s national custodian of Remembrance is working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to keep alive the memory of those who died in the First World War. By the end of the Centenary in 2018, our objective is to ensure every fallen hero from across the Commonwealth is remembered individually by those living today. This is your chance to take part in a truly historic and incredibly significant act of Remembrance.
It’s easy to get involved, whether or not you already have someone in mind to remember. Just search for any name on the homepage and follow a couple of simple steps. You can plant a poppy, write a remembrance message and even upload photos and a story if you have them.
The inspiration for Every One Remembered comes from today’s younger generation. Following a visit with her local Scout group to a war cemetery in Belgium, 14-year-old Gemma wrote to us:
"I know that not everyone can be remembered as individuals, but I felt it was a shame for some people to have dozens of poppies and crosses while others had no one left to remember them."
Now, with your help, every one of them will be remembered.
If you make a donation to The Royal British Legion after remembering someone, you’ll receive a special commemorative certificate in the mail.
Your money will go towards providing practical and immediate support to serving men and women, veterans and their families affected by today’s conflicts, helping people into jobs, into homes and offering them hope for the future.
Our information on casualties from the First World War has been supplied by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). It was established by Royal Charter in 1917 and maintains the graves and memorials of the 1.7 million Commonwealth Service men and women who died during both world wars at 23,000 locations in 153 countries.
