War Cemeteries and Memorials
There are 610 burial grounds containing Commonwealth war graves in Belgium, and seven memorials commemorating those with no known grave. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) maintain some 300 with their own staff; the others are maintained through arrangements made with the Belgian Ministry of Defence, although CWGC regularly inspect them and carry out structural maintenance (eg replacing or re-engraving headstones).
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission can supply further information and help to trace the gravestone of a New Zealand soldier.
There are also a number of German cemeteries and memorials in the area.
