Exhibition celebrating One Hundred Years of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
The exhibition tells the history of the CWGC from its foundation during the First World War through to the present day, using historic objects and artefacts from our archive and collections. Many of the exhibits have never been publicly displayed before. They include an original First World War grave marker and a petition from the 1920s with more than 8,000 signatures, mainly from mothers who had lost sons in the war, asking the Commission to reconsider the use of a uniform headstone in favour of a cross. These and other objects tell the story of how the vision of one man, Fabian Ware, came to forever change the way we remember the war dead. There is a free 45 minute tour at 2pm, subject to guide being available. Departures from 12 noon, arriving home from 4:30pm.
