A very impressive grave yard with a documentary center to learn a part of the history that was new to me. A kind receipt by the super intendent. With lot's of stories of soldiers who did not survive.

Excellent place to visit as the visitor centre provided a quiz for the children that kept them happy whilst the adults could wander and take everything in. Very moving place especially the wall of remembrance.More

Beyond the thousands memorialised, the site is blessed with an amazing little chapel characterised with a brilliant mosaic, powerful maps, and a truly...More
