The ‘British cemetery in Jerusalem’ is the smallest British cemetery in France and has only 47 graves. Despite its size, it’s a quaint and peaceful site definitely worth visiting.
The soldiers who fought in the battle of Tilly-sur-Suelles on the 8th June 1944 are buried here. 35 of these soldiers were originally buried beside the hamlet of Jerusalem near the village of Juaye-Mondaye and the other 12 not far from Belval farm.
The land was a gift from Chouain village and so the bodies were later brought together in the ‘British cemetery in Jerusalem’. A Czech soldier is also buried here, along with a 47th unidentified body.
