Set on the outskirts of Dunkirk, the Commonwealth War Graves are a lovely, peaceful setting. Victims of both wars are buried here, from several countries, and they are kept in magnificent surroundings.

Very well kept war graves and lots of information to read about who was buried there. Beautiful etched glass window of Dunkirk in monument.

As with all CWG sites this was well maintained. There are infact 2 seperate sites here The main one has a wonderful engraved window. However don't miss the smaller site as next to it is a Belgium site. The two together are very contrasting

Visited the graveyard with my brother. It had a lot of old graves. It's a place to checkout if you are a history person.

This memorial and cemetery is among my favorites. Created with honor and reverence, it is a reminder to never forget. Many buried or honored here have no name. Yet, their memory and sacrifice are honored just as reverently as those with full name, rank, and...More

My French isn't good enough to read any small print that may be around but we visited several war cemetery's on this trip and nowhere did I see a sign indicating dogs weren't allowed.
