THE GOVERNMENT OF IRAQ HAVE MADE A FREE GIFT TO THE BRITISH PEOPLES OF THOSE AREAS OCCUPIED BY THE BRITISH WAR CEMETERIES IN IRAQ WHICH WERE FORMERLY GOVERNMENT LAND THOSE AREAS WHICH WERE FORMERLY PRIVATE LAND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED IN PERPETUITY BY THE IMPERIAL WAR GRAVES COMMISSION. The number of the Plot is indicated by a Roman numeral following the entry, the Row by a capital letter and the grave by a number. Thus II. B. 28 indicates Plot II BRow Grave 28. The particulars given in this Part of the Register have been compiled from information furnished by the Record Offices and the next-of-kin. In all cases the relatives have been asked to furnish the personal information they wish to appear in the Register and where possible this has been given in their actual words. Special Memorials to officers and men whose graves have been lost are indicated by the name of the place of burial followed by a number: thus— “Angora Mem. 20” indicates the twentieth name on the Angora Memorial Stones. Baghdad (North Gate) War Cemetery contains graves in which more than one soldier is buried and on which more than one headstone is erected. As each of these graves has a single grave number it follows that the numbering of a grave given in the register will in some cases not correspond with the number of the headstone as determined by counting from the beginning of the Row. Visitors should therefore examine the whole row if they do not at once find the grave in which they are interested.
