Higher Cemetery

The memorial for the fallen of World War Two who are buried in Higher Cemetery can be found at the eastern end of the cemetery.

There are three blocks of graves for those who died in Devon, one for 29 German and one Italian, one for the dead of Commonwealth and Allied forces consisting of 31 graves, and one for the 65 British dead. There are graves of servicemen and fliers from Poland, Australia, Canada, Southern Rhodesia and New Zealand.

Close by are the graves of two German flyers who were shot down over Devon, but not buried in the German block.
