Burial Information


Cemetery:

ALAMEIN MEMORIAL
Egypt

Grave Reference:

Column 271.

Location:

Alamein is a village which is bypassed by the main coast road approximately 130 kilometres west of Alexandria on the way to Mersa Matruh. The first Commission road direction sign is located just beyond the Alamein police checkpoint and all cemetery visitors should turn off from the main road onto the old coast road, which is parallel to the former. The cemetery and the ALAMEIN MEMORIAL both lie beyond the ridge. Road direction signs are in place approximately 25 metres before the low metal gates and stone wing walls which are situated centrally at the road edge at the head of the access path which leads down through the memorial building and into the cemetery. The Cross of Sacrifice feature may be seen from the road.
