Helston Cemetery

In the years following World War II, many Canadian military members served with units of the British Military. As was the situation with the Canadians serving in continental Europe, there were deaths among its members - many from training accidents. The Canadian military members were buried in cemeteries throughout the United Kingdom, generally close to where they died.
