We found it both fascinating and sad to read the inscriptions on the tomb stones. So many young soldiers helping to maintain the British Empire in the Victorian era came out to Sri Lanka to serve their country and died from malaria and dysentery, most of them under the age of 25 years. Those, mostly officers, who were older and married lost many children and babies and in some cases their wives. There was one grave commemorating a British officer who was killed by a wild elephant!
You need to be fairly fit to visit the Cemetery as it is up a very steep climb but the views are good.
