A very well kept memorial to the military who died during WW2 in the Oosterbeek & Arnhem area. I visited after attending the Hartenstein Museum. This seemed an appropriate way of humanising the Hollywood blockbuster that gives a surprisingly accurate description of actual events in 1944.

Like all Commonwealth War Graves its simply designed and beautifully kept as as a tribute to the fallen. Rows of graves testify to the carnage much more than the numbers of the dead. And reading the headstones hints at stories, lives cut short and the their nearest and dearest.

Nothing really prepares you for this. Checking family names on the headstones. Seeing the ages of those who died. Understanding the ultimate sacrifice. A place of peace and serenity in memory of those who gave their lives to preserve our freedom

My father, who is 94, flew a glider into Arnhem as part of Operation Market Garden. He first took me there at the age of ten & I remember searching row after row of headstones in the cemetery to find his co-pilot who was killed during the battle. Lately, I have been accompanying my father for the annual commemorations which... More

This's probably the only military cemetary that I've shed a tear at. So sad. So well looked after. Easy to find, easy to park. I visit every September, rain or shine.

Lovely & respectful for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for their mates. Sadly noticed a number graves stones only showing "A Soldier of the 1939-1945 War". Lest We Forget.

We normally travel to Oosterbeek for the main Market Garden commemorations in September but as my WW2 veteran father-in-law is almost 90 the packed programme over that weekend is getting too much for him. We decided to visit in July to give us more time to explore the area and it was a great move. Although VERY hot (35c +),... More

This cemetery is a mix of all the non-American forces who participated in Market Garden. It is in a nice quiet residential neighborhood and peaceful. The graces are laid out in a common pattern as seen in the Commonwealth cemeteries. This was one of my favorites from this visit and is well worth the trip.

Very moving experience also found a grave of a person my mum knew the family of and the history of the family beautifully kept by the commonwealth war graves commission well worth a visit

Go to the Airborne Museum first, watch the museum intro video, only 8 minutes. Explains how important this cemetery is to so many people. The inscriptions from friends and family on the graves thanking the chaps for their effort / sacrifice / being themselves is something else. Read them and weep, to coin a phrase.
