Speaker: Gareth Bury

We are all aware of the Brookwood Cemetery on our doorstep, the main War Graves Cemetery in the United Kingdom. But what of the other millions who died in the two world wars and other conflicts? Gareth will describe how the CWCG started and all the political battles that were encountered; the mothers who wanted their sons home and the aristocracy who wanted their sons buried in their ancestral estates rather than on the battlefield with their soldiers. A fascinating story.
