Historical Information

The cemetery contains war graves of both world wars, all of which are scattered in different parts of the cemetery.

The Cross of Sacrifice, built of Stancliffe stone, was erected after the 1914-1918 War and stands inside the cemetery entrance. It commemorates not only the servicemen buried here, but also those buried in Gateshead (Saltwell) Cemetery.
