..... which regrettably is one of many in the whole area - beautifully maintained. This one is to be found adjacent to the Newfoundland war memorial and associated area and within a stone's throw of the 'Y' ravine area. All very sad.

The small but beautiful cemetery is set at bottom of the memorial grounds, you can’t miss it if you walk all way round

Take in this cemetery as part of a visit to the whole area. It's very well laid out and maintained, as you might expect, and there is a handy register if you're looking for a particular person. There are a couple of information boards explaining...More

As part of the Newfoundland /Canadian memorial this is a must to see. The trench network, and the large crater left by a huge exploding mine.

Situated in Newfoundland memorial park, as with all CWGC cemeteries, this is a place of tranquillity and respect.

The graves that are touching mean there are more than one body and the ones that aren't are individual graves. The lost of life here is a somber reminder of this horrid war.

Beautifully cared for by the CWGC. I got to talk with some of them as they worked at the site. A peaceful place now, a place to pay your respects.
