Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery is open 24 hours a day.

A peaceful resting place

The men who fell on the beaches and in the bitter bridgehead battles are buried in Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery which, despite its name, is near the village of Reviers. The cemetery contains 2,049 headstones enclosed by pines and maples. These mark the dead of the 3rd Division and the graves of 15 airmen.

The flanking registry buildings have platforms from which the visitor can see the whole area and appreciate the skill and devotion that has gone into the planning and design of this superb cemetery.
