Do we have a War Graves Category, for all the overseas Cemeteries where ANZACS are

+5 votes

Suda Bay War Cemetery, Greece

Have just added the above as a Category, looking for the level/category to put above it please.  #Anzac cemetery.  

Just added some sources to an unsourced profile, so added some categories while I was there. 

Wheres that clever Kiwi Graeme Olney yes

There is the [[Category:Commonwealth War Graves Commission]] where you can put any cemetery with Commonwealth war graves in it. I do not know of an ANZACs specific category. This would need to be discussed with the Military & War project.

You can also use the World War I Cemeteries and World War II Cemeteries, while they are not specific to any army at all, a combination of CWGC and World War I & II categories will make the ANZACs cemetery easier to find.

Thanks Isabelle you beat me to it - I was thinking of the CWGC connection/ Categories would be the right place for the connection

Very Good!  Thank you Isabelle, that sounds like the one. smiley 

Sorry to bump an older topic, but I'm having trouble figuring out what to do about my Grand-Uncle George.

George was originally buried in the Coptic Cemetery, Sohag, Egypt, according to his military records.

However, according to communication with the Office of Australian War Graves, Department of Veterans' Affairs, back in July-August 1992, George was buried in Plot A, Grave 2, Minia (El Minya) War Memorial Cemetery.

According to more recent search on the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (so I could cite it), George is now buried in the Cairo War Memorial Cemetery (H. 36), where his name has been handwritten into the records between two typewritten names.

His cousin was Killed in Action in France and is buried in the Jeancourt Communal Cemetery Extension, Jeancourt, France, but there's no category for that.

I also have a cousin by marriage who was originally buried Pope's Hill Cemetery, ANZAC, Gallipoli  5/8 mile N. E. ANZAC Cove A18.2 .. .. he is now buried Quinn's Post Cemetery, ANZAC: memorial reference: A. 22

His brother is buried Ismailia War Memorial Cemetery, Egypt.

I can't find categories for either of those, but that may just be my inability to search properly.

There's also my other Grand-Uncle, buried Berlin South West Cemetery, Brandenburg, Germany.  If there's a category for that one, I haven't had any luck finding it.
