A stone’s throw from the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy on boulevard Fabien Ware, the British military cemetery is managed by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The site was assigned by France to the United Kingdom in perpetuity, and contains more than 4,258 gravestones. They show the name and rank of the soldier and the weaponry of his unit. Sometimes the families have added personal epitaphs. At the foot of the graves a small floral garden invites contemplation.
