Parameters[edit]

Please note:

  • With parameters or values that are not applicable/available or unknown, please use "none" or "unknown" rather than the ambiguous abbreviations "N/A", "n/a", etc.
  • At least one reliable source citation must accompany each qualitative or subjective judgement, quantity or statistical entry (see WP:MILMOS#CITE).

Parameters whose inclusion is required are listed below in bold italics.

native_name The name in local language of the area where the memorial is located. If more than one, separate using {{plainlist}}.
native_name_lang The local language's ISO 639-2 code (e.g. "fr" for French). If more than one, use {{lang}} instead.
body The country or other body responsible for administering the memorial (e.g. the Commonwealth War Graves Commission).

use_dates Period during which the people interred at the cemetery died, given as a en dash-separated pair of numbers (e.g. "1915–18"). This often corresponds to the dates of a particular conflict. Do not use if commemorates above is specified.
established Date when the cemetery was established or first used (use {{start date}}).
unveiled Date when the memorial was unveiled (if established provided, do not use {{start date}}).
coordinates Location of the memorial. For coordinates, use {{coord}} with display=inline,title. Please do not be overly precise.

Microformat[edit]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[edit]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[edit]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[edit]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
