Dutch War Graves
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

After the Second World War, the London Borough of Paddington gave half an acre of land in the North of this cemetery to the Netherlands War Graves Commission. Here, from graves in all parts of the United Kingdom, were transferred the remainss of 254 Dutch soldiers and sailors from both their Royal and Merchant Navies. The names of 185 casualties who are not buried here are inscribed on two large memorial stones. The memorial sculpture in bronze was designed by Cor Van Kralingen, with an inscription on the plinth which reads, in Dutch : "In memory of the Netherlands War Victims, 1940-1945." The plot was opened on the 12th. May 1965 by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, in the presence of H.R.H. The Duke of Gloucester, in his capacity as President of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. During her visit to England in April 1972, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands visited the graves. In order to find the Dutch War Graves, turn left (North) at the entrance and keep walking along the main path, keeping the chapel to your right. You will soon see the graves, in front of you and to your left. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
