The British and Commonwealth graveyards of World War I are truly unique and beautiful gardens that can be appreciated on a number of different levels and it was not surprising to learn in the attached article from THE LITERARY DIGEST that many of the finest aesthetic minds in Britain had a hand in their creation. At the point in time when this article was published, representatives from all the combatant nations could be found throughout many parts of Europe, Asia-Minor and the Middle East, identifying their dead and landscaping their respective graveyards.

Printed six months after the last shot was fired, this article is about the Imperial War Graves Commission (now called The Commonwealth War Graves Commission) and their plans regarding how the dead of the British Empire were to be interred; ninety years on, the corpses continue to be unearthed all over the old Western Front and many of these cemeteries are still having to find more space.
