Dunkirk Memorial (Dunkirk Town Cemetery)

Gazetteer No. G0701


Address Dunkerque, Nord France


The graves from the First World War cover two parts of the Communal Cemetery. The main part lies next to the Dun- kirk Memorial erected after the Second World War, and consists of a number of graves and a Cross of Sacrifice. The other graves from the war are found in a small field amidst the civilian graves. A tree has been placed on either side of the Cross of Sacrifice. It seems improbable that Lutyens had anything to do with the design. (Geurst, 2010, p.279)
