BROOKWOOD MILITARY CEMETERY
Surrey, United Kingdom

Grave Reference:

IX. F. 7.

Location:

Brookwood is 30 miles from London (M3 to Bagshot and then A322). The main entrance to Brookwood Military Cemetery is on the A324 from the village of Pirbright. Brookwood Military Cemetery is owned by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and is the largest Commonwealth war cemetery in the United Kingdom, covering approximately 37 acres. In 1917, an area of land in Brookwood Cemetery (originally The London Necropolis) was set aside for the burial of men and women of the forces of the Commonwealth and Americans, who had died, many of battle wounds, in the London district. This site was further extended to accommodate the Commonwealth casualties of the Second World War, and American, Belgian, Czech, Dutch, French and Polish plots containing the graves of Allied casualties. There are also German and Italian plots where prisoners of war lie buried.

  • Essay– Belle Isle Regional High School - 'Lest We Forget - Springfield, New Brunswick'

In the Spring of 2008, the Grade 11 Modern History students at Belle Isle Regional High School completed biographies for eighteen First World War soldiers.  Their assignment was part of the ¿Lest We Forget¿ project initiated by Blake Seward, a history teacher, in Smiths Falls, Ontario.

The students researched individuals from Norton, New Brunswick who died while serving in the First World War.  There are 44 names listed on the local cenotaph, Riverbank Memorial and it is their intention to continue this project until students have completed biographies on all the individuals listed.  Their teacher, Stephen Wilson, then intends to research the soldiers from the Second World War.
