  • 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
