Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is in Gloucester Road, Boscombe, and was at one time called Boscombe (St. James's) Cemetery. It belongs to the Corporation. The war plot is enclosed by a hedge, and the War Cross is on the West side of it.
Some of the 120 First World War burials in this cemetery are those of soldiers who died in Bournemouth's auxiliary and private hospitals. 75 of these graves are in a special plot on the main path and include a Special Memorial to 2 soldiers drowned off Bournemouth in January 1915, whose bodies were not recovered. The plot also contains 7 of the 68 Second World War burials, the rest being scattered throughout the cemetery. One of the First World War burials is unidentified. There are 4 Foreign National war burials here. In all there are 192 identified war casualties. (text used with permission of CWGC; added by Geoffrey Gillon)
