|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There are 101 wargraves here scattered in various parts of the cemetery. After the Great War a Cross of Sacrifice was erected facing the entrance in honour of all these servicemen. Subsequently a Special Memorial was installed commemorating two men buried in a part of the cemetery which was turned into a Garden of Rest, where their graves could no longer be maintained. A similar memorial commemorates three men originally buried in Widnes (St. Mary) Old Cemetery around the site of a former church, whose graves are now lost. [text added by Geoffrey Gillon]
