  • Sure to pass through here! Cemetery is incredibly maintained, many white slabs with beautiful red flowers make impression. In the visitor centre and the names of the soldiers are called up photos projected. Found this very poignant. ...

  • 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.
