These cemeteries are so well maintained as they should be. This one clings to the banks toward a river. There are Australian and Maori graves as well as unknown soldier graves.

A beautiful cemetery up on the Ramparts of Ypres , just past the Lille Gate. Overlooking the Moat. Very peaceful & well kept by the CWGC.

Chanced upon this really peaceful and beautiful cemetery while taking a walk along the ramparts from Menin Gate to Pacific Eiland. There aren't many graves here but the whole place is beautifully maintained and serene. One can easily spend an hour just soaking in the tranquility here balanced no doubt by the horror of war and the price these young... More

At the going down of the sun we will remember them and of course you can't fail to remember them and be moved by visiting this First World War cemetery

Initially hard to find, but when driving by it's already impressive. When you read the stones, it shows the love for these heroes, but makes you sad they've not made it.

This is an excellent little cemetery in a beautiful location that will be of particular interest to any visitors from New Zealand (as there are a number of Maori regiment graves located here). Would recommend visiting this cemetery while taking a walk around the ramparts.

This military cemetery is set on the old ramparts. We visited it some 30 minutes before sunset, on a beautiful sunny evening. It made the site almost romantic, although the horror of war could not be hidden. Very well looked after.

Without doubt, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is by far and away the best government department any country has or will ever have. Thank you

We came across this cemetery by chance and it again is humbling to see all those who gave their lives in the WW1 and the many who have no resting place.
