The National Army Museum works closely with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) and the Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre to provide historical context, research and advice on cases of identification and commemoration of Army personnel casualties from the First and Second World Wars.
The CWGC continues to add names to their records, online database and memorials. The Museum assists their work by providing in-depth research to establish whether an individual qualifies for commemoration. Many cases are of those who died after their discharge from the Army. The Museum also helps to identify those in 'unknown soldier' graves.
In this talk, Emma Worrall will discuss how cases are researched and processed through the War Graves Adjudication Unit, the role of the Museum, and what happens afterwards.
