This cemetery dates back - as the name suggests - to the earlies British associations with the Rock. Despite being at a busy road junction near the southern city gate and around the corner from the cable car station, almost as soon as you step in through the gate the place becomes quieter. It used to be badly over-grown, but... More

A very small cemetrey, sadly in need of some TLC. Considering the historical value it is such a shame it is not better looked after and in need of display information boards to highlight those buried there and about the Battlefof Trafalgar. Many of the graves are unreadable, but still the historical feeling abounds. Quiet and small, but still very... More

I felt the same emotions that I felt when visiting the first world war and second world war cemeteries in Europe, realising that if these young men had not sacrificed what they did. British people may well have been speaking Spanish and eating frogs legs. Most were only out of boyhood and called to defend England from the might of... More

The site is small but worth a visit as it shows the respect for the sacrifices made by those in the past

The Cemetery is quite small but non the less interesting seems to be undergoing a good clean and tidy up at time of visit very easy to miss if you don't look for it well worth the time to visit.

Please take time to visit this little oasis and walk through the cemetery where the remains of many who died during and after the Battle of Trafalgar are lovingly tended. Read the tombstones and you will bet an insight into life in those days. Some of the Midshipmen and sailors were 14 years old or even younger. Many of those... More

The cemetery is very small and at the top end of the high street, so a fair walk. Not a lot to see although there is the grave of Nelson there.

Looking a bit worn and tired, but a moving tribute to Gib's fallen heroes. Frequented by the taxi-drivers touting for business though.

Trafalgar Cemetery is a pretty and peaceful resting place for the soldiers and their families who were stationed in Gibraltar in the 1800s. There is a Trafalgar memorial, and the service men who were injured at the battle and died from their wounds are all buried here. Many of the graves and walkways are decorated with cannon balls. There are... More
