There are a number of war graves and memorials sited at St Pancras, Islington & Hampstead Cemeteries.
These memorials are dedicated to service personnel who lost their lives during and just after both world wars. They are all maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
For more information on casualties and their places of burial please look at http://www.cwgc.org/
There are also a number of maps of short walks around the graves of, and memorials to, people who took part in the First World War and were buried here.
Generally they died of wounds received as it was, and still is, policy to bury the fallen as close as possible to where they died. Some of the memorials are family ones but most are the traditional Commonwealth War Grave Commission style of a simple Portland Stone headstone.
