I had found out online where my Great Uncle was buried having been killed in WWI so decided to visit and was very glad I did! An extraordinary place: peaceful and beautifully maintained and a lovely place for quiet reflection. RIP Cecil Burt.

Another beautifully maintained and well documented CWGC British Cemetery. This one actually contains my Great Uncle remains. Such an emotional event to find he has a final resting place.

Very easy to find, very easy to park. Beautifully maintained as are all the CWGC cemeteries. Judging by the many tributes it receives plenty of visitors. There is shelter should the weather turn to rain but its location means a car is the best way...More
