|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There 66 wargraves here and in any cemetery or churchyard with over 40 graves, The Commonwealth War Graves Commission erect a Cross of Sacrifice, designed by the architect Reginald Blomfield to represent the faith of the majority. By using a simple cross embedded with a bronze sword and mounted on an octagonal base, Blomfield hoped to, in his words, ‘keep clear of any of the sentimentalities of Gothic'.
