A very reflective place to go and remember the young men who gave their lives in this bloody conflict 70 years ago . A plan that might have shortened the 2nd World War , but ended in disaster for the allies .

Need I say more? Heroes, every single one of them. Take your time to walk around the cemetary and think. Think hard.

Have been to Oosterbeek Cemetery twice, for the Market Garden Memorial service. Most humbling experience of my life. When the children walk into the cemetery and place flowers on the graves...I defy anyone not to cry...I did. One of many war cemeteries where far to many young men lay. They gave up their tomorrows.

I went early on sunny Saturday morning and there was nobody there. There is plenty of parking outside. You go slowly up to the gate, open it and slowly walk inwards. "Their name liveth forever more" is the first prominent thing you see. You then go and see the headstones, row after row of young men's lives taken away. There... More

A beautifully maintained C.W.G.C cemetery where brave soldiers and airmen involved in the Battle of Arnhem are laid to rest. Easy to find the graves from a comprehensive list of names. A very peaceful and respectful setting and a credit to those who maintain it

Very moving Commonwealth war cemetery. Good to see so many visitors, of different nationalities on a cold October morning.
