This template is used to provide links to pages in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's database at http://www.cwgc.org.

Usage[edit]

{{cwgc cemetery|nnnnn|accessdate=}}

  • nnnnn is the database number found in the Commission's url.
  • If included, the optional parameter accessdate= will enable the editor to show the date the database was accessed.

Example[edit]

The url for Ploegsteert Wood Military Cemetery is http://www.cwgc.org/search/cemetery_details.aspx?cemetery=51602&mode=1.

Extract the 51602 and add it to the template and |accessdate= as the second:

{{cwgc cemetery|51602|accessdate=2 October 2014}}

This produces direct links to the four parts of the cemetery register:
