Tientallen graven van bemanningsleden

Op de gemeentelijke begraafplaats liggen 59 gevallen vliegeniers van het Britse Gemenebest. Ze werden erheen gebracht door de bergingseenheden die op het vliegveld actief waren.
 
De begraafplaats is (anno 2007) slecht onderhouden, bij de graven CWG-graven stond een plaatje met verontschuldigingen voor de slechte staat. Er zouden werken beginnen om het kerkhof te herstellen. Info volgens de CWGC:
