Location Information

Mombasa is an island city off the Kenya coast and Mombasa British Memorial will be found in Mombasa (Mbaraki) Cemetery, a large civil cemetery which contains war graves plots as well as scattered war graves.

The cemetery is located on the southern side of Mombasa island, on Mbaraki Road. Entering Mombasa via the vehicle ferry at the end of Nyerere Avenue, take the second left turn into Mbaraki Road. The road continues straight for a distance before bending round to the right. The large civil cemetery is on the right hand side of the road on the inside of the curve.

The Cemetery fronts directly onto the road, from which the Cross of Sacrifice by the Second World War graves plot can easily be seen.

The Memorial takes the form of an inscription on the base of the Cross of Sacrifice in the Cemetery. It records the names of officers and men of the United Kingdom Corps and Regiments, of South, West and East African units and the West India Regiment, all of whom died and were buried at sea off the East African coast.
