Immaculately maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the site dates from the early years of World War Two and is the last resting place of fifty-six named ‘Charioteers’. Containing a total of 329 burials – 74 of which remain unidentified – the cemetery also contains the graves of airmen shot down during the many raids on the area, and servicemen lost both prior to the retreats of 1940 and when the troopship Lancastria was sunk offshore on 17 June, 1940.
