Cemetery notes and/or description:
The war cemetery is north-east of the town, 1 kilometre north of the railway station in Bulevar Jugoslavija. It lies adjacent to the church of the Archangel Michael and an accommodation building for the university.
Historical Information: Skopje was captured by the Bugarians in October 1915 and re-entered by French cavalry at the end of September 1918. Skoplje British Cemetery was created after the Armistice when burials were gathered together from Kumanovo British Cemetery, Prilep French Military Cemetery, Veles British and French Military Cemteries and other burial grounds. The great majority of those who died were men of the RASC (MT), who died of influenza after the Armistice with Bulgaria. There are now 124 Commonwealth servicemen buried or commemorated in this cemetery. Six of the burials are unidentified and special memorials commemorate six servicemen buried in Uskub German Cemetery whose graves could not be found.
