How the First World War changed the way we mourn
The First World War was one of the most significant conflicts of the 20th century. Between 1914 and 1918, more than nine million men were killed on the battlefield, many of whom were buried in makeshift graves near where they had fallen. For the families of victims who never returned home, the traditional rituals of bereavement were disrupted forever.
