From a cold February day in 2012.

Interesting cemetery, including French, German and British graves from both wars.

 

If you ever visit then use the second exit from Versailles Chantiers Metro/RER station and the entrance to the cemetery is just a short walk away.  On the main path to the British plot is the grave of the cross-channel pilot Louis Bleriot, and various family members.

 

There's a good selection of photos for this cemetery on Google Maps.

 

Regards,

 

Ian

When I was researching a man from Thornton Heath, London, for a war memorial project, I found photos of them in uniform & index/memorial cards with cause of death in Croydon archives.

 

For interest they are shown, and i found Croydon archives very helpful.
