Artist's Description

The Cannock Chase German war cemetery is on Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, England.

On 16 October 1959, the governments of the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany made an agreement about the future care of the remains of German military personnel and German civilian internees of both World Wars, which at the time were interred in scattered cemeteries in the UK not already maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. It was agreed that the remains would be transferred to a single central cemetery established on Cannock Chase for this purpose.
It contains nearly 5,000 German and Austrian graves. There is a small separate section for the crews of the four Zeppelin airships (SL 11, L32, L31, L48) shot down in World War I.
