There are 18 foreign war graves in this cemetery. 8 Germans, 8 Norwegians and 2 Italians all in a shared war graves plot. The CWGC seem to be unaware of the first German grave (Agofanow) and I will take up the issue with them. If I can find more details about these individuals (e.g. from other nations equivalents of CWGC) then I will come back and amend the posts.

There was a consolidation of German war graves to Cannock some years ago but graves like these in a war graves plot were not included.
