Anzac Day

Recently, on one of the mailing lists, the War Grave Photographic project (at http://www.twgpp.org) was mentioned. This database contains 788 Parrys, including 23 Australians and 9 from New Zealand. A search on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site returns a total of 821 Parrys, with 34 from Australia, and 10 New Zealanders.

The photographic project includes graves up to the present day, and both sites include other surnames, such as Parryman, in the results, so more work is needed to clarify the overall totals, but the following is the list of those from Australia and New Zealand included on either or both sites:
