My husnabd's uncle lies here. He was a Para and KIA during Operation Market Garden. This cemetery is immaculate, very peaceful and certainly gives us a lot to be thankful for. If you visit in september try to take part in the service of thanks, a very moving experience to say the least!

The Airborne Cemetery has the graves of 1745 allied soldiers - mostly from England and Poland and a few here and there from Canada. Mixed in between all of these are the graves of unknown soldiers. These soldiers fought in a major battle in Arnhem near the end of WWII. Visit the Airborne Museum for the history of this battle.... More

I've visited here twice over the last couple of decades (my father in law was an Arnhem veteran who thankfully survived the battle). If you are in the area, please visit and spend some time here to reflect on the cost of freedom.

We are always moved by the memory of how so many young people died to bring peace. We make it a priority to visit military centuries whenever we are near them. This was a Commonwealth resting place magnificently set next to rolling cornfields.

I'm not sure what you can say about a way memorial. They are always quiet, respectful places, which are beautifully maintained. Note that there is a register of graves (in alphabetical order) in the brick building to the right of the entrance gate, as you enter.

Poignant Memorial to the Brave and Strong men who took part in Operation Market Garden. Inspirational and thought-provoking, a reminder of how grateful we are and that we must never let this happen again

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.
