    Default Worldwide Cemeteries WW1 military burials

    Or, in the case of men being lost at sea or bodies not found on land, then where people are commemorated.

    I can't take the credit for finding the website, as I've pinched it from another thread.
    https://astreetnearyou.org/search/

    Over a million entries, worldwide, searchable by cemetery, regiment, date, or name.

    Cemeteries list is in order of number of casualties. as is the list of regiments.

    https://astreetnearyou.org/regiments

    I believe that the site is still a work in progress.
    I was fiddling around with a search, and found that under Royal Navy HMS Queen Mary there are 987 casualties, but Wikipedia says that 1266 men lost their lives when the ship sank in 1916.

    There's more information about how all the details have been collated if you click the i symbol in the top banner.
