Jhansi Cantonment Cemetery
Ranked #14 of 15 things to do in Jhansi
Reviewed 2 April 2018

The Jhansi Cantonment Cemetery, aka The British Cemetery, is not easy to find. I would definitely suggest hiring a local guide to lead you around Jhansi. Interestingly, the nearest landmark is the Indian Army Mosque, located in the same area. During our travels around India, we visited many sites relating to the 1857 Mutiny. Stopping off in Jhansi, we paid a visit to the Jhansi Cantonment Cemetery, also known as the British Cemetery, which contains a number of memorial plaques listing the dead from the 1857 Mutiny. Jhansi is important in the saga of 1857, both from the standpoint of loss of British life and the celebrated role of the Rani of Jhansi as an Indian folk hero. As with all aspects of this story, your opinion of the Rani will be colored by your cultural biases. We stopped specifically to see the memorial plaque listing Sgt. Newton, his wife and two children, killed by the mutineers at Jhansi.
Maintained by some nice Anglo-Indian ladies, the British Cemetery receives very few visitors. The head of the Cemetery Association gave us a tour and was pleased to accept a donation to help pay for upkeep. It is about 8 acres in size and is actually in pretty good shape.
