Burial Information



Grave Reference:

III. H. 4.


The Baghdad (North Gate) War Cemetery is 800 metres beyond the North Gate of the City of Baghdad on the south-eastern side of the road to Baguba. The North Gate Cemetery was begun In April 1917 and has been greatly enlarged since the end of the First World War by graves brought in from other burial grounds in Baghdad and northern Iraq, and from battlefields and cemeteries in Anatolia where Commonwealth prisoners of war were buried by the Turks. Commonwealth casualties of the First World War are commemorated by name in the cemetery, many of them on special memorials. During the Second World War, Baghdad was again an objective of Commonwealth forces. A base was established near the city and remained in use until 1946. Within the cemetery is the Baghdad (North Gate) (Khanaqin) Memorial, commemorating 104 Commonwealth and 439 Polish servicemen of the Second World War buried in Khanaqin War Cemetery which, owing to difficulty of access, could not be properly maintained. A memorial has also been erected at Khanaqin. Note: The Commonwealth War Graves Commission strongly advises that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office should be contacted before attempting to visit Iraq. Their details are as follows:
