There are 17 Commonwealth war casualties commemorated on Roosendaal General Cemetery.
Roosendaal was occupied by the Germans from May 10th, 1940 until October 30th, 1944, when it was liberated by the Allies. During this period especially just before the liberation, air raids by allied planes inevitably caused much damage and a number of civilian casualties. Moreover, both Roosendaal and Nispen suffered considerably from the exchanges of artillery fire. In Nispen nearly all the houses were damaged or destroyed by the shelling.
