Try the Public Records Office for research.

WGC website is easy to use to track down war dead.
Not only grave locations, but also gives Service Numbers, which opens doors to medal cards, conduct sheets, etc.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission finder. This is the cemetery link, but the home page gives other material as per Billthedrill

Broken Link Removed

Beware, the site is very slow, presumably due to the amount of traffic.

Also specific to WW2:
