Cemetery

To accompany the fascinating history of Royal Victoria Hospital there is a walk that can be taken up to the hospital cemetery. The cemetery was constructed to accommodate military and civilian casualties from across the Empire from the end of the Crimean War up until the Second World War. It is a powerful and poignant memento of the magnitude of the wars that were fought over the century it was in use.
