Time spent here reflecting upon all these young men and civilians who lost their lives in this ten day action really brings it home how valiant their efforts were to secure our freedom. RIP.

My Uncle is buried here after dying during the Arnhem raid in 1944. It is a beautiful location lovingly cared for and surprisingly visited by lots of Dutch people, from school children, through young juveniles up to families. It was so special seeing the Dutch people still offering theior rememberances to our fallen soldiers.

This cemetery is the final resting place of the British, Commonwealth, Dutch and Polish servicemen who died during the battle for Arnhem in 1944. I'm serving, and what struck me was that there is three battalions worth of soldiers buried here. They include two sets of twins, including the Gronert brothers of The Parachute Regiment who died together and are... More

A lovely tribute to soldiers from England, Canada, Poland, Scotland, and New Zealand who gave their lives during World War II. Very nicely maintained with white crosses and flowers. We stopped here before visiting Hartenstein Museum which covers Operation Market Garden.

All is quiet. Such a beautiful place, reminding us of such a horrible history. Well maintained, if you are there in September, don't miss the yearly gathering commemorating the battle of Arnhem. It is very impressive. Very.

It is the best place to think about life and its end... I would suggest not to make a quick visit, but dedicate some time to this place.

Whenever we are in an area which is associated with the two world wars, we always make a point of visiting areas of memorial or commemoration - like the commonwealth war cemeteries. We must never ever forget the courage and sacrifice of those who are buried in these beautiful, now peaceful places - always so calm, serene and beautifully maintained... More

We visited here before the airborne museum. The place is beautifully kept and as you read all the graves of men aged from their teens upto mid thirties it really makes you think what our predecessors did for us! I thought it was very good that the schools here bring their children along to see the place. They were all... More

On entering the cemetery the first thing you notice is the totally immaculate way the cemetery is kept and the peacefulness of the surroundings. Walking around, looking at the age's on the headstones you feel very humble that so many young men gave their lives so we can be free

Beautifully maintain, this cemetery holds the soldiers killed during Operation Market Garden. I recommend you visit the Airbourne Museum just down the road first to get the context.
