Commonwealth War Graves

Does any one know about these?
I went to Escomb, Co Durham today and came across a well marked Commonwealth War Graves site
curiosity got the better of me, why was it here in an obscure location?
looked it up and only 12 graves listed.  and they were all local UK citizens who died in WW1 or WW2 and all served in British regiments - Why Commonwealth War Graves?

Re: Commonwealth War Graves

As I'm sure you already know by now, a search on the CWGC website http://www.cwgc.org/ didn't find Escomb listed at all.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Pedant mode on/
Your criteria were Co Durham and Escomb not Bishop Auckland (Escomb)

Re: Commonwealth War Graves

I went to United Kingdom and started to type Ebscomb and it auto filled with Bishop Auckland, which last time I looked is in County Durham
