This website contains a data base of the Australian and Zew Zealnad Troops who died at Gallipoli.
Some records of the dead have photographs of their graves and newspaper cuttings attached.
 
 
This is its mission statement;
 
Project...

...hopes to provide details of available information on the men of the AIF who are either buried or commemorated at Gallipoli

The project will provide details of sources, including reference books, newspapers and general sources where photos and information on the men can be found.

The project:

indexes photographs, notices and details from newspapers and difficult to access sources to provide information
hopes to include at least 1 photo or newspaper article for each individual
will make it easier for people to find if they have family members buried/commemorated at Gallipoli, by including a 3 generation family Index to easily identify family members

The Anzac spirit is often discussed and debated, this project does not address the history of the campaign, military strategies or the "mateship" ethic.  It looks at family aspects so that interested and related people can connect with these men.

It aims to develop the soldiers as men, personalising them - as part of peoples' families, as individuals.

This project does not duplicate the great work done by the Australian War Memorial (www.awm.gov.au), the National Archives of Australia (www.naa.gov.au) or by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (www.cwgc.org) in making information on the servicemen readily available.
