Bayeux War Cemetery

Blvd Fabien Ware, Bayeux

The basics

The cemetery holds 4,648 graves of soldiers from 10 different nations, including Great Britain, Canada, and Australia, and also a number of graves belonging to German soldiers. Some of the gravestones are marked simply, “A soldier of the 1939–45 War—Known unto God,” for soldiers with unknown identities. Opposite the cemetery is the Bayeux Memorial, dedicated to 1,800 Commonwealth men who died in Normandy battles but have no known resting place.

A private sightseeing tour from Caen or Bayeux combines a visit to the Bayeux War Cemetery with historical beaches and battlefields, along with museums and other cemeteries. While their ship is docked at Le Havre, cruisers can also take a day trip to the cemetery, Juno Beach, and more.
