This website is an excellent resource for those researching Anzac officers (Australian and New Zealanders). It has photographs of many of the officers.
It should be noted that the site also contains a database which contains the epitaphs on the gravestones of those Anzacs which have known graves.
The preamble for the database is shown below;
Listed here are the epitaphs of all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died during the Gallipoli campaign and who have a known grave in any one of the 31 military cemeteries in the Helles, Anzac or Suvla sectors of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Graves in the East Mudros and Portianos cemeteries on the island of Lemnos will be added soon.

All epitaphs appear here in exactly the same form as they are inscibed on each headstone, except that the originals are all in upper case letters. The epitaphs were usually supplied by the soldier's family.

New Zealand soldiers normally did not have epitaphs engraved on their headstones, as the New Zealand government of the time did not offer this option to the families of its soldiers, but in the case of 'Special memorials', a standard epitaph was inscribed. This was 'Their Glory Shall Not Be Blotted Out'

Please note that this is NOT a complete list of all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died at Gallipoli.
This is a complete list of those who have a known, marked grave which is located in one of the cemeteries on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

Many more soldiers have no known grave. They have no headstone. Their names are inscribed on the memorials to the missing.
