Overview
More
KIRKEE WAR CEMETERY was created to receive Second World War graves from the western and central parts of India where their permanent maintenance could not be assured. The cemetery contains 1,668 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. There are also 629 First World War servicemen buried in the cemetery in unmarked graves in the grassed area between the Memorial and the Cross of Sacrifice, and who's names are recorded on the KIRKEE MEMORIAL. The KIRKEE MEMORIAL stands within the cemetery and commemorates more than 1,800 servicemen who died in India during the First World War, who are buried in civil and cantonment cemeteries in India and Pakistan where their graves can no longer be properly maintained. This total includes the names of 167 servicemen buried in Deolali Government Cemetery whose graves are currently being reinstated by the Commission, and 629 servicemen mentioned above whose remains were brought from Bombay (Sewri) Cemetery for re-interment here in 1962. On the same memorial are commemorated almost 200 East and West African servicemen who died in non-operational zones in India in the Second World War, and whose graves either cannot be located or are so situated that maintenance is not possible.

A cemetery very well maintained and kept. Just looking at it gives you a sense of inner peace. In the stones there, you can see a good systematic pattern and discipline. Worth a stopby to pay reverence and seek Inner Peace

Very well maintained cemetery ! Better than many of our public gardens. The calmness and serenity that you experience when you visit this place makes it a really worthwhile visit. Definitely, a very good way of honoring the dead soldiers and keeping their memory alive.

The place is located in the vicinity of the cantonment area. It is neatly maintained and can be accessed by the general public. The place is a bit far from the city center and it is best accessed in a cab.

Well-maintained part of Commonwealth history- an ode to Commonwealth soldiers who fought and died in the 2 World Wars - seems to be maintained by the British Government - must be the only war cemetery maintained by a foreign country.
