Nottingham General Cemetery - War Graves Week Tour
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 Cross of Sacrifice.
Many of the 336 First World War burials in Nottingham General Cemetery were made from the Bagthorpe War Hospital and other war hospitals in the city. More than 100 of these graves form a war plot, with the names of the dead inscribed on an adjoining Screen Wall. There are also ten Second World War burials in the cemetery, and one Belgian grave.
Small car park on-site; no toilet facilities; uneven ground; wheelchair access.
