Historical Information

The Merchant Navy seaman from Norway buried in this cemetery lost his life in a tanker which was sunk by a German submarine in the West Indies. His body was cremated at Kingston, St. Vincent, in the Windward islands and the ashes were later repatriated. The grave, which has a private memorial, is at the far end of the cemetery, on the left hand side.
