VISIT OUR HISTORIC SITES OF REMEMBRANCE DISCOVER CEMETERIES AND MEMORIALS ACROSS THE NORTH EAST REGION HARROGATE (STONEFALL) CEMETERY NORTH EAST 3 LEEDS (LAWNSWOOD) CEMETERY Over 300 Commonwealth service personnel of the World Wars are commemorated here. Many died of wounds at the 2nd Northern General Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the North of England during the First World War. Today, many of these graves cannot be individually marked. A memorial can be found here which names each of the individuals whose graves a headstone cannot be placed above. This beautiful cemetery was begun in 1914, and a handful of First World War (1914-18) servicemen were laid to rest here by local families. During the Second World War (1914-18), Bomber Command airfields were established across Yorkshire and today you will find nearly 1,000 airmen at rest in a special war graves section of the cemetery, many of whom flew with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
