Very moving easy to find and beautifully maintained. We walked there easily from the centre of Bayeux
We arrived to this immaculate cemetery in high spirits...it took minutes for that mood to change to great sorrow..every school should visit this site!

There are plantings in the rows and the tombstones here give the age and at the bottom are very personal statements from the family.
