The town of Bayeux, in Normandy, lies 30 kilometres north-west of Caen. Bayeux War Cemetery is situated in the south-western outskirts of the town on the by-pass (D5), which is named Boulevard Fabian Ware. On the opposite side of the road stands the Bayeux Memorial. BAYEUX WAR CEMETERY, which was completed in 1952, contains 4,144 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 338 of them unidentified. There are also over 500 war graves of other nationalities, the majority German. The BAYEUX MEMORIAL stands opposite the cemetery and bears the names of more than 1,800 men of the Commonwealth land forces who died in the early stages of the campaign and have no known grave. They died during the landings in Normandy, during the intense fighting in Normandy itself, and during the advance to the River Seine in August.

While visiting Bayeux, I highly recommend stopping here. It’s not a bad walk from town and it’s something I think everyone should stop at and appreciate the sacrifice made.

On the recommendation of our D Day Landing Tour guide Eric Le Doux - Turnbull, we stopped at the British War Cemetery at Bayeux. We were glad we did!

A poignant memorial to the fallen British and other nationalities of the Second World War. Located close to the city centre of Bayeux this haven of peace and tranquility is an ideal place to stop and pause a while in contemplation and reflection.

So many, so young....gave their lives to enable us to have the freedom we do. If you have the chance, go and pay your respect. This was a very emotional trip.

Of the three big war cemeteries in Normandy this is, for me, the most emotional as each headstone has a message from the soldier's family, making it a very personal tribute. Flowers around each grave add to the atmosphere.

A beautiful, peaceful, and humbling experience. A must-visit. Within walking distance of town (20-minutes from the cathedral), and across the road from the museum of the battle of Normandy.
