List of cemeteries and memorials containing burials of men executed under the Army Act during the Great War

 

 90 years after their deaths, 306 of the 346 soldiers who were executed for military offences during World War I were granted posthumous pardons from the British Ministry of Defence. These soldiers were executed during hostilities for breaches of military discipline that included desertion, cowardice, quitting their posts, striking a Senior Officer, sleeping at their post, and casting away their arms.

The remaining group of 40 soldiers were not granted a pardon, because of the nature of their crimes which included murder and mutiny.
