Overview
More
The town of Bayeux, in Normandy, lies 30 kilometres north-west of Caen. Bayeux War Cemetery is situated in the south-western outskirts of the town on the by-pass (D5), which is named Boulevard Fabian Ware. On the opposite side of the road stands the Bayeux Memorial. BAYEUX WAR CEMETERY, which was completed in 1952, contains 4,144 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 338 of them unidentified. There are also over 500 war graves of other nationalities, the majority German. The BAYEUX MEMORIAL stands opposite the cemetery and bears the names of more than 1,800 men of the Commonwealth land forces who died in the early stages of the campaign and have no known grave. They died during the landings in Normandy, during the intense fighting in Normandy itself, and during the advance to the River Seine in August.

Everyone should visit, walk quietly through and reflect on all the lives lost for us today. I always find it beautifully kept by the Common wealth WGC.

An wake up to the sacrifice of the men and women during WW-2. The grounds are beautiful and short walk from the D-Day museum in Bayeux, France.

Without the dramatic location of the US cemetery but every bit as respectful. Readily accessible on the edge of Bayeux.

Really moving cemetery and a must to visit whilst in Bayeux. The sheer number of graves are overwhelming and we owe so much for all of the men who fell during Operation Overlord.

Lovely well kept cemetery. A place to go to make you appreciate the huge human cost of WW2 - the amount of under 25’s is shocking.

The War Graves Commission do a wonderful job in preserving the memory of those men who died in the War. The use of native English trees is such a thoughtful detail and conveys such respect. Look out for the different tomb stones denoting the graves...More
