I have not visited this cemetery myself, but was forwarded some low-quality images of war graves by a local historian, Menno Wielinga, to whom I'm much endebted for this information. He has assisted me in the compilation of the website for HMS Timbertown, the internment camp for British sailors at Groningen during the Great War.

Please refer to the CWGC description for details.
