The cemetery chapel will be open again on the 11th and 12th November from 10am until 3pm each. The cemetery records will be available to view and we’ll also be launching the 4th book in the ‘Gainsborough’s War Story’ series.
This latest edition covers 1917, and includes 33 Squadron - Royal Flying Corps, the conflicts at Arras, Paschendaele and Cambrai.
There are more details about the book here.
