An interesting cemetery that is worth the walk out of town to. The commonwealth graves in white stand out from the drab grey local graves which are surrounding.

Visited the graveyard with my brother. It had a lot of old graves. It's a place to checkout if you are a history person.

My French isn't good enough to read any small print that may be around but we visited several war cemetery's on this trip and nowhere did I see a sign indicating dogs weren't allowed.
