This is a beautiful cemetery in Belgum. My Father who was killed on Nov 15, 1944 in WWII is buried there. I visited the cemetery in Spring 2000. The staff was very helpful and helped me locate the grave site and place sand from Normandy on the marker so I could read it better. My son was in germany at the time and he ws with us. He has visited the site since that moment we were there. I dont believe they charge a fee for veterans families that have loved ones buried there.

War cemeteries can be overwhelming in size. Numerous graves next to each other to left to the right and in front of you. Not in this garden. Enemies of the Great War rest in a peaceful setting as if they are communicating with each other. The setting and scenery is so peaceful and different. A must visit...
