Been here a couple of times over the years to show my respects to a fraction of those American servicemen who bravely sacrificed their lives to allow us the freedom we enjoy today. Legendary jazz trombonist Glen Miller is one of a dozen notable names...More

Everybody in the free woröd should go here. The "boys" buried here gave there lives for us all in the following generations to live free. It is our duty to protect this freedom that was given to us so that we can pass it forward.

What a beautiful and sacred place to visit the American Fallen Heroes🇺🇸of battles in/near the United Kingdom. I was totally unaware of this magnificent memorial and Cemetery in Cambridge England. Wonderful museum that accompanies the hollowed grounds and soaring chapel. A must experience!🇺🇸

What a beautiful place! We brought our American friends here last week. They were overwhelmed. The place is beautiful and a poignant Mark of respect for our American comrades.

Stopped here on the way to Cambridge and glad I did. The visitor’s center presents a simple but interactive reminder of the enormity of World War II. The cemetery itself is a quiet remembrance of the losses from that war. A must see.

Our daughter's choir sang at the cemetery to commemorate those who have lost their lives in war. A very moving experience. The grounds are well kept.

We are glad that you 'discovered' this memorial to the competence, courage and sacrifice of the young Americans who were based in Britain during World War II, and found it a moving experience.

The flag is raised by the time that the cemetery opens at 09:00. It is lowered to 'Taps' at 16:30 every day. Visitors are encouraged to help fold the flag in the way that is traditional for the US flag.
