Commonwealth Graves

Commonwealth Graves - Bayeux, Cemetery, Europe, France, Normandy, travel

There are 4,648 soldiers buried in the Bayeux War Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth cemetery of the Second World War in France. There was little fighting in Bayeux, despite its strategic importance to the invasion of Normandy, so the burials come from fighting in surrounding regions. And beyond burials from the United Kingdom, Canada, Poland, Australia and New Zealand, there are also more than 500 burials from other nations, the majority from Germany.
