The former ‘Scarborough Cemetery’ was established in the mid-19th century and today Scarborough (Manor Road) Cemetery and the neighbouring Scarborough (Dean Road) Cemetery contain some 54,000 civilian burials. Amongst the civilian graves are the graves of over 100 servicemen and women who died during the two world wars. Most came from the local community and were buried here by their families. In addition to the military casualties of the world wars, the war cemetery bears testament to the civilian death toll in both conflicts, having casualties buried here from the German navy’s bombardment of Scarborough in 1914 and from German air raids during the Blitz in the Second World War.
