Arbroath 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.

For generations, Arbroath has earned its living from the sea. The town
remains an important fishing port but is equally well known for its unique
place in Scottish history. A long-established holiday resort, Arbroath
continues to attract visitors from near and far. Arbroath is situated on the
A92 highway north of Dundee, Scotland.

The Western Cemetery in Arbroath is the resting place of Petty Officer
William Ernest Laplant of the Royal Canadian Navy.
