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.

Visiting on the anniversary of Victory in Europe (May 8), the cemetery was especially poignant with its memorial wreaths, flowers, and remembrances. As you explore, you will discover this cemetery also contains the graves of Germans from World War II. Every grave is maintained with...More

This cemetery is beautiful and perfectly maintained; it will also remind you forcefully that war is about death, and hundreds of thousands of young men gave their lives for us. Very pwoerful.

The inscription on the wall is testimony to the soldiers who lie in this magnificent garden of remembrance. The sombre but moving memory to the youth (mostly) who died to rescue this land. The cemetery is maintained immaculately - just observe how clean it is...More
