During the two World Wars, serving members of the armed forces who were killed abroad were buried in Commonwealth War Cemeteries near to where they fell.
Those who died in the UK were, in many cases, buried in their local cemeteries. Those who had left the service but died subsequently from wounds received may be buried in their local churchyard but not in War Graves.
The North Mymms History Project's Mike Allen has been researching the war graves of St Mary's, North Mymms.
