We will remember them
Did you know that Tunbridge Wells Cemetery (which surrounds the crematorium building), has two memorial areas dedicated to those who died in the two World Wars? The cemetery contains the war graves of 72 Commonwealth service personnel of World War I and 63 of World War II.
Both areas are tended and beautifully maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission – which was established by Royal Charter in 1917. Its duties are to mark and maintain graves of the members of the forces of the Commonwealth who were killed in the two World Wars, to build memorials to those who have no known grave and to keep records and registers, including after the Second World War, a record of the Civilian War Dead.
