Watford Cemetery, Somerset

Watford Cemetery.jpg

Watford military cemetery contains memorials to soldiers and their families from 1853-1899. Here the Queen's Regiment honoured their comrades, who died of yellow fever in the 1864 epidemic. This cemetery became the final resting place of four Grenadier guardsmen who died when the 2nd Battalion was stationed in Bermuda in 1891. Here, in this place of serene beauty, lie the graves of soldiers from many different regiments. One memorial records the respect for a prisoner and nearby, in unconsecrated ground, convicts were buried from 1849.
