Commonwealth War Graves, Harrogate

I visited Harrogate because I wanted to photograph the memorials in St Peter's church.
However on my way back to Wetherby I stopped off at the Commonwealth War Graves at Stonefall cemetery - it is just off the main Wetherby road, past the Great Yorkshire show-ground, and then first left. This brings you to the back entrance, considerably quieter and probably better parking. Stonefall is a large cemetery and the War graves are almost separate from the rest of the cemetery. I was very impressed by the quiet and content feel - it was almost deserted and everything was spick and span. I photographed the graves and left via the main gates on the Wetherby road. The photographs are below. further work shortly!

The register is kept here, There are also 3 plaques inside

  1. If you have the time,a wander through the main cemetery will reveal lots more war graves dotted around. Mostly from the First war. Many, but by no means all are Foreign servicemen from all over the world. They do take some time to find though.
