Sorry if this has been discussed already but I've started posting a few cemeteries recently and have come to think the best format espescially for small cemeteries might be an opening post with details of cemetery location etc., photo of cemetery map and CWGC cross if one exists; then a second post with the names of all CWGC entries in alphabetical order, and a third post with non CWGC headstones listed in alphabetical order.

What I wondered was
1. What are your thoughts, if any, on this?

2. I have been listing all of the CWGC entries in alphabetical order in one single post. This seems simpler to me but is there any advantage in this or is it better to create an individual post for each individual name? For instance does a large number of individual posts effect the bandwidth? Alternatively would loading a large number of names and photographs on a single post (which is what I have started doing) become increasingly slower to open when visitors click on it?

The idea behind "one post for each name" was that if we receive further information on that man, such as biographical details or a photograph, the original post can be edited to include that information, thus keeping it all together.

If all the graves are in one post it makes it more difficult to do that.
