Tourgéville War Cemetery



A calm and peaceful site, in memory of Second World War soldiers

This war cemetery was created in 1920 and is home to the graves of American, Commonwealth and German (prisoners) soldiers.
Today, the cemetery houses the graves of those who fell during the two world wars, be they friendly or enemy combatants. There is a total of 315 graves.
If you take a closer look at the grave stones, you will notice that some are rounded, others pointed. This distinguishes the British from the German graves, whilst both nations being laid to rest in the same cemetery is an exemplary step towards peace, to be admired in this heritage site not to be missed.
