A well kept monument

I'm not sure that the graves are actually occupied, but it's a very nice memorial. It's well kept. Easily viewable from outside if the gate is locked

This attraction appears to be a beautifully kept cemetery. There are headstones and memorials all well kept and tended to. But no one is truly buried here. The soldiers are buried elsewhere or were never found. Go to honor the dead...even though they are not really there.

Located in a quiet neighborhood near some embassies, this cemetery is a touching monument to the Commonwealth soldiers fallen in the wars fought in the region, well before the WWII also. It's not a touristic spot, but a place to pay respect to these soldiers. The epitaphs on the tombs are really moving, even more thinking how far from their... More

Unfortunately not in an accessible place for all to see. Should be marked as a "must see" place for tourists as well as locals. There is no other cemetery like it in Sudan

An easy walk from central Khartoum, contains about 400 Commonwealth War Graves, a nice place to stop by and pay your respects

It's a kind of pilgrimage for me, visiting CWGC cemeteries. Considering this is in Sudan it is a wonderful place, beautifully kept and obviously well loved by the two attendants (and their backers in the British Embassy). It contains war dead from the war against the Mahdi starting in 1885 almost through to the present day. In addition to the... More

Just opposite NISS, and the busy street, you will find this beautifully kept oasis commemorating those who died during the campaigns of 1940/1 in Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea. Very moving at any time, especially during the Remembrance Day service organised by the British Embassy. See here: http://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/2000437/KHARTOUM%20WAR%20CEMETERY and here: http://www.cwgc.org/find-a-cemetery/cemetery/2054000/KHARTOUM%20MEMORIAL
