Commemorative Information

Cemetery: EL ALIA CEMETERY, Algeria

Grave Reference/ Panel Number: 12. J. 15.

Location: El Alia Cemetery lies 13 kilometres south-east of Algiers on the road to El Harrash and is situated within a large civilian cemetery.

Historical Information: The cemetery was originally an allied war cemetery, but was taken over as a civilian cemetery by the municipal authorities after the removal to other burial places of almost all save the British graves. These now occupy the British War Plot, which is 400 metres from the main gate, and is reached by turning left at the end of the central avenue.
