Having visited this cemetery post visiting the Dutch cemetery, I was clearly disappointed. This cemetery is a reminder of the varied heritage of Surat and the least it deserves is some efforts to maintain it. Although it is conveniently located on the highway, it is not much visited by the public. I hope the SMC will take the initiative to... More

I officially LOVE this place. The locals are mainly totally unaware of it and taxi or auto drivers may struggle to find it but it is well worth the effort. The Dutch Cemetery is better known and within walking distance but this place is magical. You will most likely find an old man lovingly sweeping and caring for the tomb... More

Reason is this cemetery has a very few visitors say like about 5-10 per day. Really historical place, you're goanna find here tombs of great English... More

Surat has a glorious history as a major port of the country. People from many countries of Europe came to Surat as it was a major port. The English Cemetery is located close to the highway which is an advantage.
