Happened to be in the region and on a whim googled my surname and came to find a member of my family were buried here in 1917 so we decided to do a small detour and visit. What a beautiful cemetery, wonderfully kept (as they all are). Very peaceful, in fact it’s on top of a farm so you have cows and sheep wondering around which is lovely. It‘a hidden away between two houses so can be easily missed. It’s a very beautiful place to pay your respects to those lost.

We visited to say thank you to the brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice. And a special "thank you" to Private William Birrell Stewart of the Yorkshire Regiment, my great great uncle. Lest we forget. A beautifully maintained peaceful cemetery.

Having been passed on details of my great uncle by my father, I was determined to visit his grave. Full details were supplied by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and it was easy to find the headstone. What was moving was not only the link with an ancestor who had given his life aged 24 but the number of others of similar ages who had died on or around the same date. Beautifully kept and a tribute to the CWG who do such a great job in allowing us to pay our respects.

During our recent visit to The Battlefields of Belgium in September we stopped off at Vlamertinghe on our way back to Calais. The weather was shocking as it was pouring down (real authentic Flemish weather) which made our visit all the more poignant. You have to park in the layby on the road as access is down a very narrow track between two houses which offers no vehicular access. This is a large cemetery of some 1000 graves and Captain Francis Grenfell VC is buried here. As with all CWGC Cemeteries this one is kept in immaculate condition.
