HC Deb 15 March 1917 vol 91 cc1303-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the graves of officers who have been killed in territory which remains in the possession of the Allies have been duly marked for identification after the War; and whether the relatives of those officers are now or can be later provided with a chart by which they can find the identical graves?


The graves of both officers and men are, wherever possible, marked and registered by a special branch of the Army which has been created for the purpose during the present War. Map references of isolated graves are carefully recorded and plans and surveys made of all burial grounds. While the records and charts now being made will be available for reference, I am afraid that it will not be possible to provide individual relatives with charts as suggested.
