The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is running its first ever War Graves Week this year – and is running a special tour around historic Pudsey Cemetery.
Running from the 21-28 May 2021, the week will shine a light on our work and the people who keep remembrance of our war dead alive.
Through a series of talks, tours and events, both physical and virtual, War Graves Week will bring an immersive and inclusive programme that will reveal CWGC’s work and history in all its variety and demonstrate its ongoing relevance today.
During the tour you will learn about the history of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and about the heroic actions and self-sacrifice of some of our casualties buried in the cemetery.
There is parking on-site. There are no facilities or toilets. The ground is level and this tour has wheelchair access.
The tour, which is free, is being held at Pudsey Cemetery, Cemetery Road, on Friday, 21 May 2021 from 7pm-8pm. You can book here.
