“Battle of Trafalgar cemetery”

A well maintained little cemetery really easy to get to with free parking about 300yards away at the cable car car park.
The graves are obviously showing signs of age and some enscriptions are hard to read, others can be easily read. A pity the Government does not maintain this unique resting place, it is looked after by volunteers and a donations box is by the enterance.
This is a must see for history buffs, and a should see for all Brits!

Whenever you visit the Rock you must spend some time visiting the cemetery, it really brings home the History of the rock and also how it has shaped change in the world.

A pity that there are only a couple of graves from the famous battle but the headstone inscriptions are wonderful to read. It is only a small cemtery but worth going in and reading the headstones.

A very green and shady resting place for the hero's of Trafalgar. Its quite small but definitely worth a wonder around the tomb stones. Great place to rest after walking about in the sun.

This is a peaceful spot to stop when you have walked the length of Main Street but most of the people here did not die in the battle of Trafalgar
