List of Commonwealth War Graves Commission World War I memorials to the missing
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) aims to commemorate the UK and Commonwealth dead of the World Wars, either by maintaining a war grave in a cemetery, or where there is no known grave, by listing the dead on a memorial to the missing.
The majority of the memorials commissioned by the CWGC to commemorate the missing dead of World War I were erected in Belgium and France along or near to the Western Front. The following list is of the CWGC memorials to the missing of the First World War erected elsewhere, both in the UK and other regions of the worlds, limited to those that list more than 1000 names each.
The total from the 'numbers' column below of those listed on these memorials is 138,062.

- Some of those named on memorials to the missing will have been buried as "unknowns", with a gravestone marked "Known Unto God", but the bodies of many of those commemorated on these memorials were never recovered, could not be recovered, or no remains were left to be recovered.
- The number commemorated by the three East African memorials at Mombasa, Nairobi, and Dar es Salaam is 49,572, but as no complete record of the names of the dead exists, no names appear on the memorials.
