Visited my great uncles grave for the first time. Entering the arch there is a small cupboard in the wall that contains a record of all the people buried there and a visitors book. The cemetery is well maintained and very peaceful.

A very peaceful place, well maintained and not busy. Interesting thing also is that there are a number of German war grave in this British cemetery.
