Remember the fallen at Airborne Cemetery, a Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery and the final resting place of 1,759 men who died in World War II. This site, established in 1945, mostly holds the graves of Allied servicemen killed during the Battle of Arnhem, in which Allied troops attempted to cross the Rhine in 1944, or during the liberation of the city. Do not be surprised to see new grave markers; bodies are still being discovered in the surrounding area and are laid to rest among their comrades.

    A well kept and peaceful resting place for those that fell. To walk around the immaculately kept grave stones, to see how many fell without a name "unknown to god", is thought provoking. Thank you to ...  more »

    This cemetery has approx 1745 allied soldiers, who gave their lives between September 1944 and April 1945, when the allies commenced operation Market Garden. The cemetery is beautifully maintained and a tribute to the men who died there. The commonwealth war graves commission should be commended for their fine work at this site. I must visit for anyone who is interested in WW2 history. It is a very moving and emotional experience to visit this site.
