Location Information

Nicosia War Cemetery and Nicosia (Waynes Keep) Military Cemetery are 4 kilometres west of Nicosia, on the Myrtou road, and inside the 'buffer zone'.

Nicosia War Cemetery for the 1939-1945 War contains 218 burials and Nicosia (Waynes Keep) Cemetery contains service graves post 1947.

Visiting Information

Nicosia (Waynes Keep) Military Cemetery is situated within the UN Buffer Zone some 4 kms west of the city of Nicosia. Access to both the war and military cemeteries is possible from either side of the island. Visitors from the north will have to be in possession of a valid EU passport.

Visitors require permission to enter the cemeteries and a United Nations escort is necessary. This will normally be provided by a British soldier serving with the UN contingent, visits usually being restricted to between 09.00 and 12.00 Mondays to Fridays. Visitors should be aware however, that for military reasons it is not always possible to provide a guide and in such circumstances, access to the site will not be possible. Visitors should therefore provide as much notice as possible.

All enquiries concerning visits should be made at the Defence Section at the British High Commission, Nicosia, by one of the following methods:


Post: Defence Section, British High Commission, Alexander Pallis Street, PO Box 21987, Nicosia, Cyprus or, from the UK only using: Defence Section. British High Commission, Nicosia, BFPO 567
