    Default New improved CWGC site

    The Commonwealth War Graves Commission website has been given a big makeover. There are some great new tools: probably most importantly for genealogists you can search by forename, rather than just by initials. You can also search by exact date of death, rank, regiment, and honours/awards. These new features should make it much easier to identify relevant entries in the database.

    The Advanced Search page can be found here:

    http://www.
    cwgc.org/search-for-war-dead.aspx

    P.S. and, even better, you can sort the search results by different fields, e.g. to rearrange casualties into alphabetical order of regiment, or by rank or regimental number.
