Location information

History information

Apart from a small group of 14 graves in a reserved plot in an extension to the cemetery (about 500 yards from the 1914-1918 Cross of Sacrifice), the 1939-1945 War graves are in various parts of the burial ground. Some have privately erected memorials instead of the usual Commission headstone. The total number of 1939-1945 War burials is 145, and there is a special memorial in the reserved plot commemorating a Dutch merchant seaman buried elsewhere in the cemetery. There are also 132 burials of the 1914-1918 War, and these too are scattered in various parts of the cemetery.
