Dendermonde Communal Cemetery  

History Information (Source: CWGC)

The British Expeditionary Force was involved in the later stages of the defence of Belgium following the German invasion in May 1940, and suffered many casualties in covering the withdrawal to Dunkirk.


Dendermonde Communal Cemetery contains the grave of one Commonwealth airman of the Second World War. The adjoining Extension was made by the Germans during the First World War but the graves were regrouped into distinct Belgian German and Commonwealth plots by the Belgian Graves Service after the Armistice. The extension contains the graves of 16 Commonwealth casualties of the First World War (one of them unidentified), who died while prisoners of war.
