Commonwealth War Graves Bernay

This site is simply dedicated to showing the memorial headstones of the Allied servicemen buried in Ste Croix Communal Cemetery, Bernay, in the Commonwealth War Graves section.

The War Graves are arranged in two rows, facing one another. There are 12 against the cemetery wall, and 14 facing these. The photographs below are arranged as the graves are, starting with the left hand grave against the wall, and then photographed clockwise.

If there is anything that I can help with please contact me, and I shall do my best.

This site is currently being developed.  Please call back.
