While not free, the following is very useful if you are trying to track down the proper records for a relative buried at the Aldershot Military Cemetery. Please note, this is a cut and paste from another site, so I didn't write the following:

"The burial registers for the Aldershot Military Cemetery between 20 August 1856 and 8 September 1911 are held at the National Archives under their references: WO 156/99-102.

According to their website http://www3.hants.gov.uk/aldershot-museum, the Aldershot Military Museum holds some burial records for the Aldershot Military Cemetery; but after contacting them I have found that they only relate to the nineteenth century; they kindly informed me that many of the records relating to the cemetery, with burial registers probably after 1911 with copies of those prior to that date, are still held by the Garrison Office. Anybody trying to find somebody buried there will need to send their enquiry in writing to Garrison Sergeant Major at the address given below, who will then pass it to the appropriate office on your behalf.

The CLERK for the Aldershot Military Cemetery is fantastically helpful . Quite unlike the obstreperous people you find elsewhere.
