It’s a well kept cemetery. At one end there’s a special section for WW I graves. A pedestrian road enables visitors to access the war graves without disturbing the others

A very well maintained cemetery, commonwealth war graves at the far end provide a historic experience. May they rest in peace.

It's my father's final resting place so I visit there regularly. It's quiet, serene, pretty well maintained. For the tourist, there are the war graves - however you aren't allowed to take pictures of those
