Commonwealth War Cemetery Valkenswaard
Valkenswaard was the first village to be liberated on the main line of the British advance into Holland in September 1944. The cemetery, which lies in a pinewood, contains over 220 graves, almost all of them are those of men who fell in the fighting in the woods around Valkenswaard during that month. All the men buried here belonged to the forces of the United Kingdom.
The cemetery lies at the westside of the N69 (between Valkenswaard and Lommel) in Westerhoven in the area of recreationpark 'De Kempervenne'.
