A beautifully maintained Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery, which is also popular with local people who clearly appreciate its beauty and tranquility. Worth visiting as a reminder of the sacrifices made by others.

We rented a van. It's about over an hour drive. I think the registry is being kept by the Commonwealth War Graves in London.
