7th November 2018 – Greenbank Cemetery Bristol

Greenbank Cemetery in Bristol, close to where we live, is a wonderful place to view wildlife and nature. We thought, as we approach the centenary of the Armistice. it would be a good place to visit today in the rain. Although the trees were magnificent and,  in spite of the fact that there were many birds to observe, our thoughts (and my camera) were drawn to the large number of war graves that there are in this cemetery. There are 339 graves of men and women of many nationalities who were casualties of the First and second World War. Details of these men and women can be viewed on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s website
