I don’t think that I will ever forget seeing the rows upon rows of gravestones. All immaculately kept. A must for anyone who wants to remember the fallen

Beautifully kept cemetery. Atmospheric. The site is set out to resemble a cathedral [from the air you'd be able to see that]. and the headstones all face the 'alter'.

The largest of cemetries where many British soldiers were laid to rest. There is so much to see and take in at Ypres. If you have never realused the varsity of this war, a visit will make it clearer.

Simply, if you are neaby and do not visit this site, you are doing yourself an injustice. This site is one of the most sobering reminders that we should strive never to let this type of thing happen again. Lest we forget
