|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Many of the 332 First World War burials in Nottingham General Cemetery were made from the Bagthorpe War Hospital and other war hospitals in the city. More than 100 of these graves form a war plot, with the names of the dead inscribed on an adjoining Screen Wall. There are also ten Second World War burials in the cemetery, and one Belgian grave.
The General Cemetery is situated at Canning Circus, which is on Derby Road at it's junction with Alfreton Road. It was first opened in 1837 and The Freemans Almshouses, on each side of the entrance, were built at the same time.
