Rededication Service to be held at Amersfoort (Oud Leusden) General Cemetery

31 July 2012

A Service of Rededication is to be held at 11 am on Wednesday September 19th at Amersfoort (Oud Leusden) General Cemetery in the Netherlands, where 216 Commonwealth casualties of the Second World War are buried.

In May a year-long project to restore and renovate a war graves plot in the cemetery was completed ahead of schedule.  

Have a look at the album of before-and-after photographs (on our Facebook page). The Amersfoort (Oud Leusden) General Cemetery contains the graves of 216 Second World War airmen, from the RAF, the RAF Volunteer Reserve, the Royal Australian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Many were killed when their aircraft were shot down on their way to or back from bombing raids over Germany.

The Rededication Service will take place at 11 am on Wednesday September 19th, 2012. You can see an order of service for the ceremony here
