Barnsley Cemetery CWGC Burials

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) recognises the burials of men and women who fell in the First and Second World Wars. Where a man or woman has no known grave they are remembered on CWGC memorials around the world, usually close to the place that they fell.  

The most common CWGC gravestone is made of Portland stone, some are made from Botticino stone, which looks like marble. They are bright white when new and very conspicuous in a churchyard or cemetery even when a little darkened by age. In Scotland they can be granite and in Wales you can see slate gravestones. The size and style of the stones was designed to be the similar for everyone, no matter what rank, regiment, class, religion or nationality. See this section on the CWGC website for background information.  

Each stone has a rounded top (to prevent the water settling), some have the crest or badge of a regiment and/or a religious symbol. There is an inscription giving rank, name, regiment and date of death, sometimes age is included. At the foot of the stone is a space for a family dedication. 

When the burial of a serviceman or women is within a family plot, their details are often recorded on a family gravestone. This can be quite confusing as other family gravestones in the same churchyard bearing similar inscriptions are memorials to men or women NOT buried there (please see our War Memorial Gravestone page for Barnsley Cemetery where there are 157 entries). It is only when a burial has taken place that the site is recorded by the CWGC. 

There are 132 CWGC burials in Barnsley Cemetery. 71 are from the First World War, 61 are from the Second World War. 

CWGC are responsible for the commemoration of personnel who died between
4 August 1914 and 31 August 1921
and
3 September 1939 and 31 December 1947
whilst serving in a Commonwealth military force or specified auxiliary organisation or after they were discharged from a Commonwealth military force, if their death was caused by their wartime service.

<!-- Comment if any are inscriptions on family gravestones -->
