Historical Information:

Brussels Town Cemetery was in German hands from the 20th August, 1914, to the date of the Armistice.From the 1939-45 War, the majority of the casualties died on L. of C. duties after the liberation of Brussels at the beginning of September, 1944, but a few date from the brief period that the British Expeditionary Force spent in Belgium in May, 1940. There are now over 50, 1914-18 and over 600, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site. Fifty graves, from the 1914-18 War, are those of Prisoners of War whose bodies were brought back from Germany by the Canadian Corps in April, 1919. A special memorial is erected to one United Kingdom soldier from the 1914-18, buried in the cemetery, whose grave cannot now be located.
