Canadian War Cemetery Beny-sur-mer
(France - Basse-Normandie - Reviers)
The Allied offensive in north-western Europe began with the Normandy landings of 6 June 1944.
Many of those buried in Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery were men of the 3rd Canadian Division who died either on 6 June or during the early days of the advance towards Caen, when the Division engaged a German battle group formed from the 716th Division and the 21st Panzer Division.
The cemetery contains 2,048 Second World War burials, the majority Canadian, and 19 of them unidentified.
