German Graves


Recommended Posts

I was asked the question last night but not sure of the answer

from WW1 is there any German graves in the UK and if so where?

i know that there are a large number from WW2 but never seen any from the First W War.

Hi

 

Cannock Chase

 

There are 2 cemeteries;

 

Cannock Chase War Cemetery

https://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/2000401/cannock-chase-war-cemetery/

 

and Cannock Chase German MilitaryCemetery

https://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/4007266/cannock-chase-german-military-cemetery/

 

Netley

https://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/39250/netley-military-cemetery/

 

In fact, use the CWGC site filters

 

https://www.cwgc.org/find/find-war-dead/results?war=1&tab=wardead&fq_servedwithliteral=German&fq_warliteral=1&fq_country=United+Kingdom

 

If you use the filters you can find the WW1 German and Austrian burials.

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

There are the seven buried in the Brookwood Military Cemetery https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/268257-german-burials-and-graves/?do=findComment&comment=2719385 . Then there's the  mystery of those that may or may not have been buried in, or subsequently moved  from,  the churchyard at Monkton Tarrant https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/156794-unnamed-german-graves/?do=findComment&comment=1513250
