In a paper published in this journal , J. T. Buckely, J. C. Lennox, B. H. Neumann and the authors considered the class of CF-groups, that G such that |H: CoreG (H)| is finite for all subgroups H. It is shown that locally finite CF-groups are abelian-by-finite and BCF, that is, there is an integer n such that |H: CoreG(H)| ≤ n for all subgroups H. The present paper studies these properties in the class of locally graded groups, the main result being that locally graded BCF-groups are abelian-by-finite. Whether locally graded CF-groups are BFC remains an open question. In this direction, the following problems is posed. Does there exist a finitely generated infinite periodic residually finite group in which all subgroups are finite or of finite index? Such groups are locally graded and CF but not BCF.
