About 50,000 soldiers that lost their lives during the Second World War lay peacefully at the British war cemetery in Bayeux. The cemetery is well maintained with the simple crosses replace by replaced by stone headstones with personalized inscriptions. The memorial is also popular for inscriptions that read:
- "We saved the fatherland from William defeated Victor."
- “We, once conquered by William, have now set free the Conqueror’s native land.”
Close to the cemetery is a memorial museum which is a recommended visit as well.

British War Cemetery, Bayeux Reviews
Visited with my British friends in the summer of 2017. This cemetery is very well kept and is quite beautiful. Each headstone has the name and the division of the brave soldier who fought for all of our freedoms that we take for granted today. God save the queen, Viva la France, and God bless America.
A beautiful cemetery , we were passing and stopped to pay our respects to those that had given their lives for our freedom. As with all the war cemetery's they are kept so tidy and are so very beautiful and peaceful. Lest we forget.
A beautiful and very serene site, walk around and remember how those buried here fought and died for freedom from tyranny
What a beautiful place of rest for those men, young and old, who sacrificed their lives so that we can live the lives that we do. I found myself fighting back tears as I walked through the columns of stones, some identifying individuals by name and unit, others showing only their affiliation to certain regiments, and other stones only revealing that identification could not be made - the so-called unknown soldiers. This place of beauty, serenity and humility is truly overwhelming.
Beautiful & very moving. Well maintained as always.
