History Information

The 1914-1918 War Graves are located in a naval plot which is situated on a mound in the centre of the cemetery. During the 1939-1945 War the cemetery was used for the burial of servicemen, the great majority of whom were men of the sea and lie in this naval plot. There are, however, a few war graves in other parts of the cemetery. A Cross of Sacrifice has been erected in a central position in the naval plot. There are now 4, 1914-1918 and nearly 130 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site. In addition there is one unidentified 1939-1945 burial.
