A simple and somber memorial to those who give their lives in the Normandy campaign. Very moving and much less visited that the nearby American cemetery and the British cemetery in town.

This out of the way and smaller tribute to Canadians who made the ultimate sacrifice, is as beautiful and well maintained as its American counterpart. Just east of Reviers, the cemetery sits amongst fields, and has mature maple trees lining the perimeter of the site....More

There are two Canadian WWII cemeteries in Normandy. This is one of them and there are 2048 soldiers who sacrificed their life. Seeing all of the graves provides a visual understanding of the shear number of soldiers that died during WWII. The Commonwealth War Cemeteries...More

It is a more personal cemetery than the American one: it has more personal messages to the fallen heroes, flowers between each stone, flags and gifts. It is a very pretty cemetery filled with maple leaf trees.

I think everyone who visits the American cemetery in Normandy should also visit the Canadian site as well. It’s about 20 miles away, but on a major roadway between for Falaise and Caen. It is a very moving experience and reminds us all of the...More

This is one of so many cemeteries maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Those interred here are Canadians who lost their lives at Juno Beach. Saddest of all are the numbers of stones with no name, simply engraved "A Canadian Soldier of WWII".
