We drove by but couldn't find a reason to get out of the car. No disrespect intended. The best feature of the site is its small size. A million graves is a statistic, but a handful of graves tells a bit more of a story.

We happened by this cemetery on our drive to Bayeux. It was beautiful and well maintained and we were fortunate to get to see it.

Just 47 graves so lacks the impact of the larger cemeteries, but beautifully kept and poignant as ever.

A visit to the smallest WW2 graveyard Where two members of the RAChD are juries side by side apparently one killed whilst burying the other. A sixteen year ok also lies in this place well cared for and memorable.

The smallest of the Normandy Commonwealth cemeteries. A reminder that even the priesthood travelled with the forces, two Reverends are buried here.

We noticed it as we drove to Bayeux and stopped on our way back. I suppose there are 50 graves there all in an arc facing the cross. Although there must be hundreds of such graves around Europe each one means so much. We walked...More

It is in fact a little hamlet called Jerusalem. Again so sad but wonderfully kept. Such young men in their prime

A very small cemetery with a deep story. May those brave men RIP. You definitely need a car for this one.
