6635 Entries in Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Graves/Memorials in Europe
(Managed by CWGC)

Through agreements between the UK and other governments, personnel fighting for the Allies who were killed in the UK or Europe would be buried locally in graves managed by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC).

Some families wished the remains of loved ones to be repatriated to their homeland after the war and these will not be found in this database.

Here are the graves, therefore. of Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) personnel who are buried (or honoured) in Europe in graves (or memorials) managed by the CWGC.

Note that personnel from Canada killed outside Europe will not be found in this database.

The reader is advised to check other Canada related resources on this site. Other RCAF burials are commemorated in the Alamein Allied Air Forces Memorial database, Malta Memorial database, Ottawa Allied Air Forces Memorial database and the Runnymede Memorial database, all on this site.

Canada also has its own national memorials and grave sites in Canada itself, and also honours its fallen though its unique Canadian Naming Project, in which Aircrew Remembered has participated with research and details of which are to be found on this site.

Source for Data: acknowledgement and thanks to CWGC with enhancements added by Aircrew Remembered editors.
