We visited this Cemetery on a Personnal visit to lay a wreath at the grave of my Great Uncle John Buckley.John was from Oldham,Lancashire and joined the Lancashire Fusileers,during the War his company were wiped out and he was then seconded,as many others were,to a different Regiment.When he died in Oct 1918 shortly before the end of the War he was serving with the Suffolk Regiment.
Zandvoorde British Cemetery was created after the Armistice when the remains of soldiers from the surrounding area were brought to this place.There are 1583 burials and commemorations here.Of these only 449 are identified.There is also a Second World War burial.

A personal quest brought me to Zandvoorde British Cemetery,it is located 8 Kim's South East of Ieper town centre.
My great Uncle John Buckley is buried in this Cemetery alongside another 1582 other servicemen.1135 of the burials are of unidentified persons.
Zandvoorde Cemetery was made after the Armistice when remains were brought in from the Battlefields and some nearby German Cemeteries.Many of the dead were soldiers who died in terrible battles round Zantvoorde,Zillbeke and Gheluvelt in 1914.
Special memorials commemorate 32 soldiers who were buried in German cemeteries but their graves could not be found.There is also a Second World War burial.
