Cardiff Cathays Cemetery - War Graves Week Tours
War Graves Week is 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.
MEETING POINT at the main entrance to the cemetery.
Cathays Cemetery is the final resting place of over 700 commonwealth and allied servicemen and women of the two world wars. It contains the highest number of CWGC war graves in Wales.
