A site of remembrance and a comprehensive guide to the military cemeteries and memorials around the world
This site contains photographs of all 940 cemeteries in France and Belgium of 40 or more burials visited by Sidney C. Hurst whilst compiling his 1929 book "The Silent Cities".
All of these cemeteries have been personally visited and photographed by ourselves.
The site also contains images of over 3500
military cemeteries and memorials from all around the world. We are
continually updating and improving our images.
