In St Pancras Cemetery, over 100 graves from both wars form a war graves plot. The plot also contains a number of headstones removed from graves scattered elsewhere in the cemetery that could not be maintained. A further memorial bears the names of 27 casualties whose graves could not be marked individually, and six First World War casualties buried in adjacent Islington Cemetery who could not be commemorated there.

There are now 306 First World War commemorations in St Pancras Cemetery, including 1 unidentified sailor of the Royal Navy, and 207 from the Second World War. There are 5 foreign national burials and 1 non-war service burial here.

1 soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment is buried in this cemetery.
