  • My friends and I made a point to walk by and visit this monument. It is a touching memoiral to those lost off the NC shores during WWII. 
  • A testament to the kindness of the Ocracoke people: several British soldiers are buried in this small cemetery. A good stop to view a bit of local history. 
  • A quick stop if you are trying to see everything on the island. My husband and I found this interesting.

  • On May the 12 1942 the HMS Bedfordshire was sank just off the coast with a loss of her entire 34 man crew. Four of the five recovered British sailors are buried here. It's a simple yet poignant cemetery.
  • Excellent historical landmark.
  • Tribute to the British who died there
  • Neat history but there isn't much parking there.
  • Interesting and somewhat sad to know all those men are forever lost at sea. Nice piece of history to show your children and teach them the sacrifice these men made.
