Burial Information


Cemetery:

WERL CENTRAL CEMETERY
Germany

Grave Reference:

Plot 4, Row J, Grave 6

Location:

There were 448 Canadians (124 Post-War military and 324 Dependants) buried in the Central Cemetery in Werl, Germany. Unlike most of North America, in most locations in Europe plots are not acquired in perpetuity but rather for a specific period of time, normally 20 to 25 years, after which the grave marker is removed and eventually the plot is reused. Fortunately, the burials in both two Canadian Sections in Werl were leased by Canada and there has been no loss of graves.
