Cliveden War Memorial Cemetery
Taplow
South Bucks District
Buckinghamshire  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery lies in the grounds of Cliveden House, formerly owned by the Astor Family, now a hotel. During the 1914-1918 War, Lady Astor opened the estate for the recuperation of wounded and the presence of a war cemetery in these surroundings is most unusual. It contains 42 burials of the 1914-1918 War, of which 28 were Canadian, two American, British, Australian and New Zealand. The cemetery is laid out as a sunken Roman garden, with symbolic broken pillars, a large font, and an allegoric statue. The cemetery was used by the hospital at Taplow which, from December 1914 to September 1917, was known as the Duchess of Connaught Canadian Red Cross Hospital and then, until September 1919, became No 15 Canadian General Hospital. There are also one Canadian and one British burial of the 1939-1945 War.
