India, Nostalgia, People, Place


MADRAS WAR CEMETERY was created to receive Second World War graves from many civil and cantonment cemeteries in the south and east of India where their permanent maintenance could not be assured. The cemetery contains 856 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. Maintained by CWGC along with Govt of India. The memorial does not contain any buried dead-bodies, but has plaques with the names of many British, Australian & NewZealander soldiers.
