CWGC Sites in Canada

For Canada Day Catherine Paterson, Work Manager for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, posts on five Canadian CWGC cemeteries and memorials which you probably never knew existed: 

  • a single burial in Oxbow, Saskatchewan, 
  • burials at a WW1 Training Camp Carberry, Manitoba, 
  • Knox Presbyterian Cemetery nearby to the WW2  #1 Bombing and Gunnery School in Jarvis, Ontario,
  • Vancouver's  Mountain View Cemetery, the largest concentration of military graves in Canada with 581 war dead,
  • the Halifax Memorial commemorating more than 3140 soldiers, sailors, and nursing sisters who were lost at sea during both World Wars.
