Commonwealth War Cemetery La Delivrande

The Allied offensive in north-western Europe began with the Normandy landings of 6 June 1944.

The burials in La Delivrande War Cemetery mainly date from 6 June and the landings on Sword beach, particularly Oboe and Peter sectors. Others were brought in later from the battlefields between the coast and Caen.

There are now 942 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. 63 of the burials are unidentified but there are special memorials to a number of casualties known to be buried among them. The cemetery also contains 180 German graves.
