|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery was opened in 1890.
Newcastle-upon-Tyne (Byker & Heaton) Cemetery contains 158 scattered First World War burials, mostly of local men who had died in Newcastle's military hospitals, including the 1st Northern General, posted in Armstrong College. In the early months of the Second World War, ground was set aside in the centre of the cemetery for service war burials but this was comparatively little used and there are only 25 graves here. The rest of the 113 Second World War burials are scattered throughout the cemetery. Total number of Identified Casualties: 283
