Cheadle-Gatley 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.

On December 3, 1955, an RCAF Bristol Aircraft was approaching the Canadian Airbase at Marville, France. Minutes before it was to land, it crashed on its approach, killing all on board. One of those killed was Flying Officer Peter Pigot. His parents lived at Cheadle in Cheshire and it was at the Cheadle-Gatley cemetery where Flying Officer Peter Pigot was buried in the family plot.
