“Lovely Litte Cemetery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

This small cemetery is for soldiers of Canadian 3rd Division. The cemetery contains the remains of 2049 soldiers killed during the D-Day assaults including 9 sets of brother. It is well worth a stop if you're visiting the area or the D-Day beaches. It is small and set is a quiet location.
It was beautiful and well-kept with a variety of flowers blooming on the graves.

“The reason for our good life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Very moving and touching visit.

The cemetery is very well maintained, an you can spend a lot of time reading all the grave markers...bring tissues.

Make sure you go and honor those who have fallen for us so that we can have what we have today

“Low Key but moving”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

A simple and somber memorial to those who give their lives in the Normandy campaign. Very moving and much less visited that the nearby American cemetery and the British cemetery in town.

“memorable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

This quiet, well-maintained cemetery with its thousands of graves is awe-inspiring. It is also beautiful, with many varieties of flowers growing on the graves. If you have children old enough to learn about war, take them here. Seeing the graves of so many young Canadians will be a vivid lesson.

“Touching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

It is always emotional visiting the Commonwealth war graves to see those who gave up their lives both young and old in the pursuit of freedom.
