Ottawa (Beechwood) Cemetery contains 99 Commonwealth burials of the Great War and 113 from the Second World War. Many of the graves are in two veterans plots, with the Cross of Sacrifice dedicated to all service casualties buried in the cemetery, located in the newer plot. The Ottawa Cremation Memorial is in a shelter adjoining the newer of the veterans plots in the cemetery and commemorates 26 Second World War servicmen whose remains were cremated elsewhere in Canada and the U.S.A. Many Great War burials are scattered throughout Canada's second largest cemetery. This video is dedicated to the men and women of the Great War. Inscription of Private Frederick A. Wylde: To Live in Hearts We Leave Behind is Not to Die.
