During the Second World War, there was a Royal Air Force station at Wick, while at Watton, about 7 miles to the north-west, there was a prisoner-of-war camp. There are 29 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-18 war here. There are a further 134 Commonwealth burials of the 1939-45 war, including 21 unidentified sailors of the Royal Navy and 1 unidentified airman of the R.A.F.
