A Canadian War Graves Commission cemetery where over 2000 Canadian soldiers buried. Lovingly cared for. Met a worman who is trying to gather stories of the buried. A short distance from Nijmegen accessible by 2 buses from Central bus station.

We were here on May 6 the day after Liberation Day. All graves were well tended with plays, flowers and vocational Canadian flags. Apparently each grave is adopted and tended by a family. And we were told that there was a waiting list for families...More

As soon as you walk over the gate, it's just silence. This Canadian war cemetary is very impresive. It is a well kept graveyard. Make a visit when you're in the neighbourhood.

As with all the Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries we have visited, this one is very well cared for and an honour to visit. It is a wonderful tribute to our fallen.
