On this Cemetery you are 226 Commonwealth war graves and six Polish war graves. Almost all of them are graves of aircrew of crashed aircraft.

This Cemetery is being managed by the municipality of the city of Amersfoort but is situated just within the area belonging to the neighboring municipality of Leusden (or Oud-Leusden).
