Brookwood Open Evening - War Graves Week

Brookwood Open Evening

War Graves Week an initiative aimed at encouraging people from the local community to come together and discover the World War heritage on their doorstep – learning about the stories of those commemorated by the CWGC and the skills, dedication and expertise of those CWGC staff and volunteers who work to keep their memory alive.

This year, we will be offering family friendly activities as well as the opportunity to learn about the history of the CWGC and those we commemorate at this site. Across the evening there will also be the opportunity to attend talks on our work, talk to our maintenance & horticulture teams, learn about our volunteering programme and have a go at engraving with our stonemasons. The team from the American Cemetery will also be putting on some activities and tours of their site.

Feel free to drop in any time between 4:30pm - 8pm or join a tour of the site. These are free but need to be booked.

There is plenty of parking available on site, refreshments will be available to purchase and there are toilet facilities too.

If coming by vehicle you will be directed to parking when you arrive. There is a direct train service from Waterloo to Brookwood Station from which there is an entrance to the cemetery. The postcode is GU24 0JB and if coming by vehicle the access is off Dawney Hill. Brookwood Military Cemetery is not to be confused with Brookwood Cemetery. Google Maps provides the most accurate directions to the site.

Please ensure you wear suitable clothing and footwear for the weather. Access to headstones will be mostly via grass.
