Great World War Gravestones - Agecroft Cemetery, Salford, Manchester, England

 

I have always had an interest in the Great War.  When many people think of the men who died during the First World War they tend to think about the large cemeteries in France and Belgium lined with row upon row of white gravestones.  However, many men were buried nearer to home.  This page contains pictures of the gravestones of the casualties of the First World War that I have discovered in the sprawling Agecroft Cemetery, Salford.  Please do not take this as being a comprehensive listing of all of the Great War gravestones in the cemetery!
