Commonwealth War Graves Harehills Cemetery

Leeds was one of the principal hospital centres in Yorkshire during the Second World War. Harehills Cemetery in Leeds contains burials of both wars, many of them in a war graves plot, the rest scattered. The First World War casualties in the plot are commemorated on a screen wall, as are 15 Second World War casualties buried elsewhere in the cemetery whose graves could not be individually marked. There are also special memorials to a number of servicemen buried in other cemeteries whose graves could no longer be maintained. In all, 176 Commonwealth casualties of the First World War and 147 from the Second World War are now commemorated in the cemetery; there are also three war graves of other nationalities.
