History Information

The majority of First World War Commonwealth war graves in Germany were moved into four permanent cemeteries after the war. However, a few graves could not be moved on religious grounds or for other reasons and they remain in their original locations in German military and civil cemeteries. Worms (Hochheim Hill) Cemetery contains a substantial plot of Allied prisoner of war burials. Among these are the graves of 113 Commonwealth servicemen who died in 1918. The names of the dead are inscribed on a screen wall. Their names are carved on a screen wall in the Allied Plot.
