Burial Information


Cemetery:

ILE-DE-BATZ COMMUNAL CEMETERY
Finistere, France

Grave Reference:

Grave 2.

Location:

Ile-de-Batz is a small island and commune 4 kilometres off the coast at Roscoff. It is best reached from Morlaix, whence there is a branch line to Roscoff. There is a good train service to Roscoff, but the ferry to the island is timed to suit the tides. The cemetery is on the right-hand side of the road from the landing stage, about 15 minutes walk. Near the far corner left (north) of the entrance, at the end of the path, are the graves of three men of the Royal Canadian Navy, one of whom is not identified.
