Standing opposite the British War Cemetery, the Bayeux Memorial is inscribed with the names of over 1,800 men who lost their lives in the early stages of the Normandy Campaign. Soldiers of the Commonwealth land forces, all the men whose names are featured here have no known grave and were killed during the D-Day Landings, the fierce fighting in the weeks that followed, and the advance to the River Seine in August 1944.
