This is one of the smaller cemeteries you can visit on the Normandy front and it is well worthwhile making a quick visit especially if you have been to Pegasus bridge. You will see the graves of some of those mention at the bridge. Well kept and beautiful as always.

Beautifully maintained British and Commonwealth War Cemetery that I found more moving compared to the other cemeteries that we visited during our trip. The personal inscriptions on the headstones from family members of those that died are heart wrenchingly sad RIP

These brave men gave their all for us and our children. There are no words good enough. I can only hope their families can find some comfort in the gratitude and respect of me and my children.RIP

As no doubt all of these cemeteries are. Row after row of beautifully kept white gravestones. Many many so young. Many many unknown. So sad and moving. A good experience and brings home just how much people gave and suffered for the sake of others. We are so grateful

We visited this cemetery with the intention of finding this soldier's grave. His grave is in the adjacent churchyard and not with the war graves. Indeed a beautiful and tranquil place. I recommend a meal or snack at the cafe next door to the small Carrefour in the village of Ranville.
