About the memorial: The cemetery contains war graves of both World Wars, the First World War burials being scattered throughout the cemetery.During the Second World War there was a Royal Air Force Station at Thornaby-on-Tees and most of the servicemen buried in the war graves plot, in Plot O on the southern boundary of the cemetery, were airmen. The small number of graves not in the plot are scattered elsewhere. The Cross of Sacrifice, erected as a central memorial to the dead of both world wars, stands at the opposite side of the cemetery to the plot, at the intersection of the two main paths leading from the two entrances. Thornaby-on-Tees Cemetery contains 30 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and 86 from the Second. The war graves plot also contains 30 German war graves. (c CWGC)
