Cemetery notes and/or description:
Cologne Southern Cemetery is located within the civilian cemetery Sudfriedhof Koln, a ten minute walk from the main entrance. Allied prisoners and German soldiers were buried here during World War I. There are now more than 2,500 World War I servicemen buried or commemorated here. The Cologne Memorial is located inside the main gate commemorating 25 British and Irish servicemen who died in Germany and who have no known grave. The cemetery also contains more than 130 Second World War graves, 676 non-war graves and 29 burials of other nationalities. In 1922 it was decided that the graves of Commonwealth servicemen who died in Germany should be brought together into four permanent cemeteries at Kassel, Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne. Graves were transferred to Cologne Southern Cemetery from over 180 different burial grounds.
