It took us a total of 6 man-hours to survey this cemetery on a lovely sunny day. We found 7 ladies who died aged 100 or older but not a single man who had reached this landmark. Many of the military graves had been maintained to a very high standard but just a few in one corner of the site seem to have been overlooked.
Harold Edward Whitfield won the Victoria Cross in Egypt in 1918.
