Eerily quiet compared to our visit to the national arboretum, literally the only people there. I couldn’t get over the fact there were 4 names on each headstone. Very peaceful spot & a nice area for a walk beyond the graveyard.

Visited this afternoon and it was so peaceful and tranquil - the grounds, graves, flower beds are kept in immaculate condition. It was nice to have time to reflect and pay my respects. Poppy laid on the unnamed soldier

We hated them, went to war against them, killed them, but now look after the dead with the utmost respect. A very humbling and thought provoking place in beautiful peaceful surroundings on Cannock Chase. The whole cemetery is immaculate and the graves are very well...More

Park your car at the first Commonwealth cemetery. That alone is fascinating, with its rows of white stones. You could be in Flanders. But walk down the country path leading away from it and you'll stumble onto something totally unexpected. A German war cemetery. The...More

Set amongst the pine trees and expanse of Cannock chase an opportunity to visit a place that makes you think of difficult times in the past. Beautifully kept as a reminder of what the consequences are of WAR.
