All reviews lille gate resting place overlooking the river peaceful setting nice walk buried here quiet reflection cwgc cemeteries new zealand worth a visit fallen soldiers town centre the menin gate memorial first world war ypres salient cloth hall last post ceremony
This is where so many good men died and the war graves commission do a wonderful job of looking after the fallen .
May they all rest in peace knowing they got the job done.
A lovely place and peaceful and lovely
We had picked up a leaflet from where we were staying for the rampart walk and found this spot.
We found these Maori graves ,then two days later there were Maoris doing the Haka at the Menin Gate ceremony ,very poignant.
The resting place of soldiers, a number of them are british soldiers. Those without a name had 'known unto God' inscribed on their tombstone. I found that comforting and so true! A beautiful setting overlooking a stream.
During a walk, starting at the Menin Poort, we passed this little cemetery. Like all cemeteries in and around Ypres, it was very well maintained with beautiful flowers and presented a peaceful setting at the water.
This small cemetery by the Lille gate is definitely worth a visit. It is small and peaceful with a register that tells you a little about those buried there. A poignant example of the scale of the Great War.
