  • Immaculately preserved cemetery honouring commonwealth servicemen in WWI. Sheer number of headstones is overwhelming and emotional to see. Everyone should visit at least one of these war memorial site...  more »
  • I was told of the silence of the cemetery, unfortunately, an English school group was climbing on the monument (or the cross) without receiving any remarks from their companions or from the guides of the Park (I do not imagine this in an American graveyard of the nor coast ... It breaks the charm of the place and testifies of a lack of respect unacceptable, in short I would like to see it in calm and silence...

  • Very moving place with many graves. Many are honoured even if their names are not known. Definitely somewhere worth visiting and paying respects to. Lots of historic information available as well.
  • Very peaceful and well kept cemetery. The visitors center is worth a look too.
