Please see below pictures of a Great War London wargraves plot that has been renovated and will be rededicated at 1.00pm on 4 November 2012.
The cemetery is Nunhead (All Saints) Cemetery, Linden Grove, London SE15.
It has taken several years to get to this stage and it would be nice if any relatives who know that they have relations buried in the Cemetery could attend.
We are also looking to welcome any people who wish to show what we owe to these men.

1. Historical Information
Nunhead (All Saints) Cemetery contains 580 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war. The majority are in three war graves plots; the United Kingdom plot (in Square 89) has 266 graves, the Australian plot (near the main entrance) has 23 and the Canadian plot (in Square 52, also containing New Zealand and South African burials) has 36. The graves in the Australian and Canadian plots are marked with individual headstones. The graves in the United Kingdom plot and the remaining war graves scattered throughout the cemetery could not be marked individually; the casualties buried in these graves are therefore commemorated by name on a Screen Wall inside the main entrance gate to the cemetery.
A second Screen Wall commemorates the 110 burials of the 1939-1945 war in a further war graves plot in Square 5 and elsewhere in the cemetery whose graves could not be marked by headstones.
There is also 1 Belgian burial of the 1914-1918 war and 7 Non-war Service burials, all commemorated on the Screen Wall.
