Cemetery notes and/or description:
In November 1850, two ships of the Turkish Navy, the Mirat-ý Zafer and Sirag-i Bahrý anchored off the Hardway at Gosport. The visit lasted several months and during this time most of the members of the crew contracted Cholera and were admitted to Haslar Royal Naval Hospital for treatment. Of those who were admitted most died; other sailors died because of training accidents. In total 26 died and were laid to rest in the grounds of Haslar Hospital. 
At the turn of the 19th Century the bodies were exhumed and transferred to a distinct, separate area within Haslar Royal Naval Cemetery [also called Clayhall Cemetery] where they now lie in peace. The Turkish flag flies over the graves.
"They set sail for eternity
met their creator
and here they are laid to eternal rest."
