    Military cemeteries where close to 6000 fallen British soldiers who lost their lives during the Great War lie.

    Close to the Ploegsteert memorial and the new First World War Interpretation Centre, there are 20 cemeteries, immaculately maintained by the Imperial War graves Commission.


    The graves of the Commonwealth soldiers who lie there are distinguishable by their rectangular tomb stones, with a slightly rounded tops and sombre beauty.

    Numerous 'pilgrims' from all over the world come each year to reflect and leave a message in the registers at the entrance of each cemetery.

    Plugstreet Memory - sponsoring a grave


    Individuals as well as primary and secondary school classes are invited to sponsor graves in the town which witnessed so much of the ferocious fighting.
