Liège Robermont Cemetery  

History Information (Source: CWGC) 

Liege was attacked by the Germans on 4 August 1914. The city itself was occupied on the 7th but the last forts were not captured until the 16th. Liege remained in German hands until the end of the war.

 

The city cemetery at Robermont was used for the burial of Allied prisoners of war and now contains French, Belgian, Italian, Serbian / Russian and Commonwealth war graves plots.

 

The Commonwealth plot contains 50 burials of the First World War, and one from the Second World War (in additional one Belgian national, who flew with the RAF, is buried elsewhere in the cemetery).  The war graves are located to the far right hand side of the cemetery. Go through the main entrance and follow the path directly ahead to the chapel, turn right here and follow this path straight on to the edge of the cemetery, bear left and the graves are in plot 163 on the left.
