  • A must visit when you're near. Words cannot describe how small and insignificant you feel when you start counting the lives lost. The cemetery is beautiful and serene. A good place to contemplate. Plenty of parking, nice visitors centre.
  • Simply Wonderful and as all CWG Cemeteries beautifully kept.
  • If this place doesn't bring a tear to the eye nothing will. What a beautiful place so peaceful and tranquil a fitting tribute to the fallen. Lest we forget
  • A very humbling experience, well worth a visit if you are in the area. It is a cemetery but if you take the time to walk around and read the names of the people that rest there it will make you think what a massive sacrifice those people made and in such terrible conditions.
  • Very thought provoking and emotional brings home the immense loss
