  • Place to meditation, quiet and intimate. One of the few military cemeteries where both are English and German soldiers. This was the condition given by the owner of the land who agreed to surrender. He wanted that all men are equal before death.

  • We visited September 12th 2017. Great-grandfather lay one grave but one next to Private Mason where a lovely personal memorial had been left by his family quite recently. They appear to be from Edmonton, I'm in Crouch End, London. My wife's great-grandfather was found on the Somme. 2 days in a car trudging over infamous battlefields. George Jarvis, however, left a manuscript which we are editing as I write. If anybody is interested or has old letters from that time (George was a medic and saw action from the very beginning, transported on the Empress Queen before she was sunk and served at Mons too) we would be most appreciate a line of contact. My family name is Simmons/Simmonds.
  • One of the nicest military cemetery I have ever seen (and there is lot of them in Belgium, believe me). It is interesting fact that here lay both Commonwealth and German soldiers from the Battle of Mons. Such a peaceful and dignify place for final rest.
  • Came to see this place to see dease vc winner and 1st & last British soldiers killed ,and very last soldier killed at 10.58am 2mins before war was ended
  • Having just completed a tour of the area this cemetery is by far the nicest settings for such a sad place, a few seats would be useful for a time of contemplation especially for the less able.
  • WWI cemetery with both allied and german sldiers buried there. The first and last soldier who died are buried in this place. Nice place to remember horror of wars

Where to stay in Mons

Despite its close proximity to the capital, Mons attracts enough visitors in its own right to offer a small variety of accommodation options. You'll find mostly small, independent hotels clustered in the compact city center and, if you look carefully, a modest selection of low-budget lodgings. To cut costs, consider staying in Brussels and making the short trip by train for the day.
