Burial Information


Cemetery:

GAZA WAR CEMETERY
Israel and Palestine (including Gaza)

Grave Reference:

Post War Section A, Row A, Gave 14

Location:

Gaza is 3 kilometres inland from the Mediterranean coast, 65 kilometres south-west of Tel Aviv. From Israel stop at the Erez Crossing point and enter the VIP cabin for a pass to enter Gaza. Walk through "no man's land" to the taxis on the other side. Gaza War Cemetery is 1.5 kilometres north-east of the city near the Bureir Road and 370 metres from the railway station.

The Cemetery is approximately 8 kilometres to the left of the main dual carriageway, Highway 250 through Gaza, and is about 200 metres back from the road through an avenue of trees.

Alternatively, turn left off the highway after 4 kilometres, continuing with Highway 4 until Sha'arei Aza junction and turn right, then turn right into Gaza proper, heading back towards the border. In this direction the cemetery will be found on the right hand side after approximately 3 kilometres.

The cemetery is open every day from 7.00am to 3.00pm Visitors are strongly advised to seek travel advice from their Embassy or Consulate before travelling to Gaza.

Wheelchair access possible via main entrance. For further information and enquiries please contact maoffice@cwgc.org
