Bayeux War Cemetery is the largest Commonwealth Cemetery of WWII in France and contains burials brought in from the surrounding districts and from hospitals that were located nearby.
BAYEUX WAR CEMETERY contains 4144 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 338 of them unidentified. There are also over 500 war graves of other nationalities, the majority German.
The BAYEUX MEMORIAL stands opposite the cemetery and bears the names of more than 1800 men of the Commonwealth land forces who died in the early stages of the campaign and have no known grave. They died during the landings in Normandy, during the intense fighting in Normandy itself, and during the advance to the River Seine in August.
