Located on the Boulevard Fabian Ware and situated just outside the town of Bayeux and in sight of the famous Cathedral, is the British War Cemetery and Memorial. Those who died during Operation Overlord from 6th June 1944 (D-Day) are buried. Bayeux Military Cemetery is the largest British World War II Cemetery in France.
The BAYEUX MEMORIAL stands opposite the cemetery and bears the names of more than 1,800 men of the Commonwealth land forces who died in the early stages of the campaign and have no known grave. They died during the landings in Normandy, during the intense fighting in Normandy itself, and during the advance to the River Seine in August.
