UK - Cliveden War Cemetery, Taplow, Buckinghamshire, England

Located 3 miles / 5km to the northeast of Maidenhead, Buckinghamshire, the war cemetery lies in the grounds of Cliveden House, which is an English country house and estate in the care of the National Trust.

Purchased by American Millionaire William Waldorf Astor in 1893, the house was in the hands of his son, William Astor (2nd Viscount Astor), when the grounds were offered to the Canadian Red Cross in 1914, for the purpose of building a military hospital.

Consequently the Duchess of Connaught Canadian Red Cross Hospital / 15 Canadian General Hospital, was built and received casualties through both world wars.

In all, 45 men and women of WW1 and WW2 are buried here: 42 from WW1 and 3 from WW2.
