4.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Assigned to the United Kingdom by King Albert I of Belgium, Ramparts Cemetery began during World War I as a burial ground for fallen soldiers. Look over the cemetery to see white gravestones resting quietly among manicured grasses and trees. Almost all of the identities of the fallen are known, with the exception of 10 graves that hold the remains of unknown soldiers. A notable set of graves are those of six Australian soldiers who were killed by the same shell. Take your time reading the names and paying tribute to the troops who lost their lives.
