Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, Reviers

4.8
Pay your respects at Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, a conglomeration of war graves dedicated to soldiers killed during the D-Day invasions and the subsequent Battle of Normandy. The fierce combat that followed the Allied landing on the shores of France in 1944 left many dead on both sides, and this cemetery serves as the final resting place for more than 2,000 Canadian troops. Wander the quiet garden grounds designed and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and view the neat rows of headstones and ornate crosses stretched out before you. Take a quiet moment of reflection at one of the on-site chapels, or simply climb up to one of the viewing platforms for a better view over the cemetery and surrounding countryside. You can use the website to find a specific name or grave, if you wish. Make Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery a part of your Reviers vacation plans using our Reviers vacation planner.

  • Back to the hotel, and after so much emotion touring Normandy scenarios, we find this last cemetery. We were alone, which made it a little more daunting than other cemeteries that we had visited on the day. Simple and as overwhelming as the rest.

  • Words fail me. Just moving. Another example of the damage done by war. May all those brave soldiers RIP.  more »
  • I found this very moving cemetery. Is expected at all to find it there, like that, at the edge of the road. After a few steps, our throat occurs, the emotion rises, the vision of these countless graves begins. It is County are mostly very young men. I found this much more peaceful than the American that it is crowded cemetery. Do soon enough when there not yet big world.

  • Worth a visit! Ignore the single one-star review. Who gives a war cemetery a bad review?!?
  • Just completed a Vimy 100 tour visiting many of the Canadian cemeteries in Normandy and Belgium. As a young teen I delivered newspapers to the veterans home, many of whom landed on the beaches on D-Day and in the weeks following. They suffered from 40 year old injuries, shell shock, etc. To see many of their friends and colleagues that never made it home was a very emotional experience. The cemetery is on a rise with a view of the surrounding villages and the ocean, the land they fought and died to free. As all war cemeteries it is immaculately kept and has a small building on which you can climb stairs to get a greater view out over all the headstones. A must see for Canadians.
  • A Beautiful and peaceful place to visit. It is heart-warming to see the thousands of flowers that have been planted in memory of Canadians who lost their lives.
  • Toured this cemetery with my wife in 2015. Never cried so much in my life. 2 of my mother's cousins are buried here.
  • Canadian cemetary not from from Juno beach; so many young men laid to rest here. I'm glad I got the opportunity to visit this site.
