I've added a plot/row search. For example if you want to find the casualties in Plot III Row A of Beach Head, Anzio:

Set the cemetery to Beach Head War Cemetery, Anzio
Set the plot to III
Set the row to A
Leave other fields blank
(you can use upper or lower case)

You will get all 12.
Note that the search engine always filters on nationality, so in some cases you may need to search on several to find all the row.

Worth checking the CWGC plan beforehand; if you don't find all expected it could be that I don't have them indexed or there are 'Known Unto God' burials which do not appear in the register, or there is an error in the data (rare but happens).

This only works with the common form of plot/row/grave, which are usually of the form:

III. A. 7. etc But there are many variations. I hope to be able to cover some of these eventually.

Cheers!

"Well, the most important thing that was new was the idea of URI -- or URL. The idea that any piece of information anywhere should have an identifier, which will not only identify it, but allow you to get hold of it. That idea was the basic clue to the universality of the Web. That was the only thing I insisted upon." Tim Berners-Lee.
