Remembering the Fallen of WW1 in Belgium

Remembering the Fallen of WW1 in Belgium

With the centenary of World War One this year, now more than ever we should take the time to remember the sacrifices made.

Tyne Cot Cemetery in Belgium is the largest Commonwealth war cemetery in the world in terms of burials, with 11,956 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated there.

The Tyne Cot Memorial at the boundary of the cemetery commemorates nearly 35,000 servicemen from the UK and New Zealand who died in the Ypres Salient whose graves are not known.
