Calais Canadian War Cemetery, Leubringhen, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Mar 18, 2017

Calais was liberated by the Canadian First Army early in September 1944 as they advanced up the French coast into Belgium in pursuit of retreating German forces. Most of the burials in the cemetery relate to this period of fighting. Calais Canadian War Cemetery contains 704 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 30 of them unidentified. There are also six Czech and 19 Polish war graves. (Source: CWGC)
