Commonwealth War Cemetery Brunssum

On the British field of honour are the graves of fallen soldiers of the commonwealth. There is a headstone of white nature stone placed at every grave. On the field of honour there is a "Cross of Sacrifice" made out of nature stone which was manufactured in Portland. A bronze sword is attached to the cross. The cross is about 4 meters high.

The British fields of honour all look the same in all 140 countries in which the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is responsible for the maintenance of the war graves.

The cross of sacrifice is a symbol for the British soldiers who were killed in action in the Netherlands during World War Two.
