The NWA British Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship
is a professional wrestling championship
that serves as the major title in the NWA UK Hammerlock

The promotions the title is defended in are NWA UK Hammerlock, NWA Ireland, NWA Quebec, NWA Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling
and NWA Pro. NWA Pro was included in 2006 due to having affiliate promotions in Australia.
