Please Note: This section records the memorials in the cemeteries. The distinction between a memorial and a headstone is not definitive, so for this section it is assumed that a headstone becomes a memorial if it offers information that places the subject, their relatives and/or their work in a wider context. The War Graves are defined as those under the protection of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and are detailed in a separate section.
