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

Then there are those that couldn't be moved to Cannock and were quietly forgotten, such as those in Greenwich Cemetery

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
