Tyne Cot Cemetery, Zonnebeke

Tyne Cot cemetery has some 12,000 graves and is the largest British military cemetery on the European mainland. 70% of the graves are unidentified.

There are 520 graves of New Zealanders. Of these, 322 merely record an unknown New Zealand soldier.

The Memorial to the Missing records 34,857 names, of which 1,166 are New Zealanders whose remains were never recovered from the battlefield - such were the conditions of the fighting and shelling. The names of New Zealanders are inscribed on panels within the New Zealand Memorial Apse located at the centre of the memorial.
