Victoria Cross Graves: United Kingdom. (1)

I only saw 3 Victoria Cross holder graves during my travels in the various cemeteries in and around Johannesburg, When I came to the United Kingdom in 2013; it was inevitable that I would see even more of them in this country. Kevin Brazier, author of “The COMPLETE VICTORIA CROSS, A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain’s Highest Award for Gallantry”, has been exceptionally helpful in my grave hunting and I expect I have many more to photograph here before I leave. I am also starting to add in George Cross graves as they too are important, and worthy of recognition.

Unfortunately many of these graves have been lost but many are now being restored and while I did not find all the graves in Brompton and Kensall Green Cemetery I hope to do so one day. Quite a few additions to this collection come from Kevin Brazier and Mark Green and I am grateful for their help. I have split the pages into two separate pages and am trying to retain the grouping of the graves by cemetery order. This page deals mostly with the images that I took in the “Magnificent Seven” and other cemeteries in London, as well as Arnos Vale in Bristol, Abbey Cemetery in Bath and graves I photographed in Portsmouth. Images open in a new window or a new page.

More information on these recipients may be found at the Victoriacrossonline website.
