This is the biggest British & commonwealth cemetery in the world. Beautifully looked after. At the rear there is a walk way with 1000’s of names on the wall. Like most of the cemeteries there will be ... more »

On the wall at the back are engraved the names of about 35,000 missing soldiers, killed in action after 15 August 1917. The remaining 55,000 names of missing persons killed between August 1914 and 15 August 1917 can be found on the Menin gate in Ypres. It remains very impressive, even after multiple visits ....
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 sobering place and a must to go to on your visit to the WW1 battlefields. The Commonwealth War Grave Commission staff are absolutely first class and go out of their way to assist. A special thank you to Sariah for all her assistance and information.
I was here on 31/7/2017 for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. This beautifully kept cemetery is a sad testament to the futility of war. I was in tears after seeing a number of graves bearing the inscription "A soldier of the great war - known unto God". I will return one day. ...Lest we forget....Their names liveth for evermore.
Visited here with my sister to see the inscription to my grandmothers first husband who was lost in WW1. Amazing place. Well worth coming back.
The largest British and Commonwealth War Cemetery in the world: a real must visit place to understand the sheer scale of loss in the Great War.
