A lovely tranquil place. Also a great location to walk in and around. Lies at the head of the beautiful Sherbrook valley...Trails for everyone including bikers & horse riders very near to the cemetery. Valley great for younger kids on bikes as slightly downhill. Photo taken just outside on path down to Sherbrook Valley.
Although called the Commonwealth War Cemetery, this plot contains 97 Commonwealth burials of World War I, most of them New Zealanders, and 286 German burials. There are also three World War II burials. During WWI there were two army camps, a prisoner-of-war camp and a 1,000-bed military hospital on Cannock Chase, and this cemetery served all four of them. Poignantly, many of the young men buried here died, not from battle injuries, but from Spanish Flu, which ravaged the world at that time. The grounds are preserved immaculately.
An area of interest, continue pass both cemeteries and get a great walk as well. German cemetery further down has the limited opening hours.
The cemetery is well looked after in a lovely peaceful place.
Interesting place, very peaceful
