This cemetery for the British soldiers killed during the invasion of Normandy is less well known than the American cemetery but should be seen first for two reasons. First, as large as it is, it helps to put the American cemetery in perspective. Second, the...More

If your doing the D-day beaches this is one of the places to visit, just to stand there and see row after row of headstones from all the countries involved in this war on both sides just goes to prove the real futility of war

The Commonwealth war Graves Commission do a wonderful job of maintaining these cemetaries, and this one is no exception. It is a wonderfully peaceful final resting place for D-Day heroes who gave their lives.

We spent a week touring WW1 and WW2 battlefields and visited many cemeteries. I believe it is important to pay respects to those who lost their lives. This is a lovely and quiet place to honor the dead of WW2.

A very moving experience. Extremely well kept memorial to those who died during the Normandy campaign. Also very modest and quiet. A place for reflection.

We visited whilst staying in Normandy as thought it would be right to do so. The cemetery is kept extremely neat and all headstones are clean. It was a real eye opener seeing it all yourself, some headstones had no names, some were 17,18,19 years...More
