This cemetery is located in a beautiful spot over looking the river. It is very nice to visit and as all these sad places they are kept so beautiful. Flowers pretty and lawns manicured.

This cemetery is in the most amazing setting overlooking the water. We were here to visit the grave of my husbands Great Uncle Alexander Trotter (Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry) who is buried here

A small and peaceful cemetery in the ramparts by the moat. Only small but most of the bodies were not recovered.

A lovely quiet place by the riverside. Not too far from the Katzmatten Brewery and Menin Gate. The walk to this place is a pleasant walk too along the ramparts.
