Office of Australian War Graves (OAWG)

The OAWG has three roles:

  • to maintain war cemeteries and individual war graves in Australia and the region
  • to commemorate eligible veterans who died post-war and whose deaths were caused by their war service
  • to build and maintain national memorials overseas (e.g. at Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum in Thailand).
