There are so many cemeteries in this area it hard to say any is better than the other, but this is up there, set just a couple of hundred yards from the Sanctuary Wood Museum, a lovely peaceful place of rest.

A couple of hundred yards from the "trenches" experience is the cemetery - so this is a "msut visit" to pay respects

This cemetery is close to the Sanctuary Woods Museum and makes a moving stop before or after the trip to the museum.

I visited many Canadian War cemeteries and it is so sad to see the numerous graves of all of the young soldiers who fought for our freedom and made the ultimate sacrifice.

A very sentimental journey into the past showing the amount of sacrifice given for our future. Very emotional.

We stumbled upon this old small WWI graveyard while on a walk through the pak by the river. A nicely kept graveyard off the main city center in a beautiful surrounding. Stop by if you are strolling through the park.

Passchendaele was mainly fought by Canadian and Australian forces who came to the call of the Mother country. They should be recognised for their great sacrifice.
