  • This is a beautifully kept cemetery full of history. Some sort of guide is necessary. I have been twice. The First time a few months there were no guides of any kind. This time the 'live' guide...

  • Highly recommended.. On a rainy overcast Sunday, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Warren who was passionate about the history and the background stories of our leaders . The details are truly fascinating. Well worth the time spent .
  • Fascinating exhibition which, considering it's size, kept me occupied for ages. I can't praise the guided cemetery tour enough. Our guide, Daniel, was knowledgeable and ready to answer any and all questions we had. He kept our undivided attention despite the rain spilling down during the tour! Highly, highly recommended!
