Burial Information


Cemetery:

DOIRAN MEMORIAL
Greece

Grave Reference:

N/A

Location:

The Doiran Memorial stands near Doiran Military Cemetery, which is situated in the north of Greece close to the Yugoslav frontier and near the south-east shore of Lake Doiran. It is approximately 2 kilometres behind the village of Doiran and is reached via a farm track after turning left in the village by a large taverna. The Memorial stands on what was called Colonial Hill, and can be seen from a distance and is a landmark. It is the Battle Memorial of the British Salonika Force, for which a large sum of money was subscribed by the officers and men of that Force; and is also the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's Memorial to over 2,000 British dead in Macedonia whose graves are not known. The Memorial takes the form of an obelisk, 12 metres high, guarded by two recumbent stone lions. It stands on a square platform, the sides of which are marked by shorter piers, and the names of the dead are inscribed on marble panels sunk in these piers.
