What’s there to say? Heroes who fought and died in WWII are buried here β€” including many German soldiers who, despite being the enemy, were looked on as having served their country and given the honor of a decent burial.

Beautifully maintained war cemetery commemorating the British forces. Some Australian men buried here too. A beautiful and peaceful place. Just walking through and reading the inscriptions is fascinating and very moving. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

We visited this cemetery in July 2018. We have seen quite a few Commowealth War Graves Comission cemeteries but this one stands out due to its size and cleanliness. Impressive!

An interesting contrast with the American cemetery in Normandy as headstones often included quotes from family members which brought out another level of emotion. Occasional photos and gardens accompanied some of the headstones. And it was interesting to see at least one set of conjoined...More

This is just not a cemetery for British fallen but for soldiers of many nations, including German, who gave their lives during the struggle for Normandy. Going through the gravestones shows what a terrible cost war can be. Sobering when you see 8 - 10...More

A visit to the war cemetary just puts into perspective the sheer scale and horror of these conflicts. We should never forget what the brave generations who went before sacrificed for us. If you've never visited, consider it now.
