Losses database

The IBCC Losses Database records the details of 57,871 Bomber Command deaths during WWII.  It provides one of  the most comprehensive record of these losses in the world.

The work to create this document has taken our team of volunteers 4 years.  Led by our losses archivist, and volunteer, Dave Gilbert.  The team have cross referenced the data with innumerable sources including national and international Rolls of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Squadron Association logs, the Chorley Volumes and POW records.

The database now contains over 3 million individual pieces of information and will help you discover the story behind each loss.  The work on the database continues with the aim to record every single loss during WWII from those who served or supported Bomber Command.
