The CWGC’s experienced volunteer guides will be stationed at Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey two to threedays a week from 6 June to share the cemetery’s story. With more than 5,000 Commonwealth war graves and almost 800 war graves of other nationalities, Brookwood Military Cemetery is the largest CWGC Cemetery in the UK and is the final resting place for service personnel from Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa, and the UK and Ireland. The military cemetery was established as the First World War drew to a close and then extended for the burial of Second World War service personnel. Brookwood shares many of its architectural and horticultural features with CWGC sites overseas, including the Cross of Sacrifice and Stone of Remembrance. During the tour, the Commission’s guides will share the history of the various plots and memorials in the cemetery and the stories of some of the brave men and women it commemorates. There is no need to book for the tours – just turn up. Tours will begin outside the Canadian Records Building, at the main entrance. Tour dates and time Every Wednesday and Sunday in June, July and August, from 6 June, at 2pm (except 5th August). Saturday 9, 16 and 23 June at 11am and 2pm. Saturday 30 June at 11am and 3pm.
