What an honour to be able to pay homage to the men who gave their lives for us. What despair in seeing so many lost in senseless war. The memorial is magnificent and a lasting Epitaph to our heroes.

The Pozieres Memorial is one I return to for its beauty and atmosphere. There are very many Commonwealth graves here,all beautifully cared for with flowers everywhere. So many young men died nearby.

A moving experience and hard to comprehend, and the headstones are only those for whom they could account with a body. Many more died and listed as missing.

We visited this cemetery as a pilgrimage to a lost soldier who was a relative of one of our members. And to be honest this was probably the second most moving of all the cemeteries we visited, beaten only by Tyne Cot. It is a...More

So many young men lost to war. Visit and sign the book. There are a lot of Australians here that fell during the Pozieres campaign July-August 1916.

This is a very busy Cemetery, all the Tours stop here - so pick your time and stop when no coaches are there. 2750 are buried here from all Commonwealth Nations, 1380 are unmarked.

The Memorial around the walls of the cemetery commemorates the missing of the 21 March 1918 Spring Offensive launched by Germany. Although they were killed to the East of the Pozieres Memorial, it is a moving tribute. Many of those killed were Irishmen, fighting with...More

This is a deeply moving and beautifully maintained memorial for the fallen during the terrible events of March 1918. We were there for a close relative and found the experience very meaningful.
