About the memorial: The memorial was erected to commemorate the patients in 1st Eastern General Hospital who succumbed to their injuries and are buried in two rows of graves along the path. The 1st Eastern General Hospital, with 1,173 beds, was posted to Cambridge during the First World War, initially at the Leys School and Trinity College, later in huts. The First World War burials in Cambridge City Cemetery are mostly in two plots, one in the southern part of the burial ground, known as the Dominion Plot, and this one located on the north western boundary. Money for the memorial was raised by public subscription.
