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.

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

A brilliant place to visit especially if you have an interest in military history. Some of the graves are of sailors who perished during the famous battle. Lord Nelson's body was taken to Gibraltar before sailing to Britain.
